Ruairí Robinson’s feature-film debut Last days on Mars has been chosen for the prestigious Directors’ Fortnight at this year’s  Cannes Film Festival.

 

The film, which stars Liev Schreiber and Romola Garai, is a tale of astronauts sent to collect specimens on Mars who encounter a terrifying force. It was written by Clive Dawson and shot by cinematographer Robbie Ryan, with post-production being handled by Irish VFX house Screen Scene.

 

23 feature films will screen as part of the Director’s Fortnight line-up, which is non-competitive, but debut films – including  Last Days on Mars – are eligible for the Camera d’Or prize.

 

The 2013 Cannes Film festival takes place 15-26 May.
