Irish writer and director Charlo Johnson has completed filming on his first short film Positive Discrimination.
Positive Discrimination, which was shot in Dublin’s inner city, is an intense drama that centres on Tanya, a college student struggling to pay her tuition fees, who receives advice from the most unlikely of sources: an elderly gentleman who has an unconventional perspective on life.
The film stars Róisín O’Donovan (Love, Rosie), Liam Burke (Ripper Street) and Niall Dempsey (Grainne Uaile), Maghnús Foy and Collette Kinsella, Jill Pilkington, Lucy Rainer and Jean Cummins.
Camera work is by Andrei Ghenoside and Rú Tobin, with sound by Greg Burrowes, make up Tatsiana Burkenova and editing by Doina Zavadschi.
