The whole weekend of Irish film is worthwhile. There is even a bit of the craic after each show.

 West Coast Premiere! My Brothers, 2010, Rubicon Films. Dir. Paul Fraser. When his dying father’s watch is accidentally broken, 17-year-old Noel and his brothers, Paudie and Scwally “borrow” a broken-down bread van from his employer, and journey to the seaside town of Ballybunion to find a replacement. 

U.S. Premiere! Swansong: Story of Occi Byrne, 2009, Kinowelt Filmverleih. Dir. Conor McDermottroe. Teased and bullied as a child because he has no father, Occi Byrne (Martin McCann) grows up plagued by anger, confusion and pain. In the hopes of unlocking his own identity and overcoming the past that haunts him, Occi sets out to find his father and discover the secret of his birth.

Each feature will be preceded by a short film: 

“Days Like This” (2007, 3 min) Director Joel Simon tells the story of a man looking back on the great day: when his father took him to an international soccer match. 

“The Line” (4 min.) Director Maria O’Connor’s fictional silent dark comedy drama combines animation and quirky locations as two characters struggle on a writing journey. (Introduction by film composer Joe Conlan!)
