Bl!nder Films have announced that their first feature film One Hundred Mornings, funded by the Catalyst Project and directed by Conor Horgan, is to have its world premiere screening at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah in January 2010. It will be one of 10 feature films screened at the festival in the Narrative Feature Competition line-up out of over 5000 applicants. This is the first time an Irish film has been selected for the festival.
Starring Ciaran McMenamin, Alex Reid, Rory Keenan and Kelly Campbell, One Hundred Mornings is set in a world upended by a complete breakdown of society, where two couples hide out in a lakeside cabin hoping to survive the crisis. As resources run low and external threats increase, they forge an uneasy alliance with their self-sufficient hippie neighbour.
One Hundred Mornings is writer/director Conor Horgan’s first feature film, though he previously directed the award-winning short The Last Time, which screened at Cannes, Clermont-Ferrand, and Tampere and was the recipient of seven awards, including the UIP Director Award and Best Irish Short at The Cork Film Festival.
