The 25th Galway Film Fleadh (9 – 14 July, 2013)
Dark By Noon
Thursday, 11th July
Town Hall Theatre
Shot in North Dublin on a shoestring budget, the Irish science fiction thriller, which was selected as the Closing Film at Sci-Fi London 2013, Dark By Noon, will see its Irish premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh. Written and directed by Alan Leonard and Michael O’Flaherty, the film was shot over eight weeks using sets built from scratch.
Michael O’Flaherty told Film Ireland, ‘Dark By Noon started 3 years ago at the Galway Film Fleadh where I met Cormac Fox from Vico films, so its coming full circle and feels like its where its Irish Premiere should rightly be. I think the fleadh needs an Irish Sci-Fi film. Eclectic audiences, the sense of fun that’s always in the air, and the ability to actually do some serious business in the Marketplace makes it a great festival, and one essential for the success of our film.’
The film tells the story of Robert ‘Rez’ Reznick, who lives in a futuristic world and is gifted and cursed with a perfect photographic memory. Rez is coerced into becoming a guinea pig for a stolen ‘Titus’ machine, a device that can temporarily send you eight hours into the future. Used by rogue operatives to make money by cheating the stock market, Rez’s life changes when he witnesses a disaster that will leave him with eight hours to save himself, his daughter and his world.
