Daffney Molloy And Other Catastrophes, the new short film from Mycrofilms, will have its premiere at this year’s IndieCork Film Festival.
A comedy set in present day Kilkenny, it tells the story of four men who whilst drowning their sorrows at a housewarming party, get caught up in stories about a near mythical girl from their past. Apart from one of them. Crippled with social anxiety and struggling with his newly found sobriety, Tommy has no idea who Daffney Molloy is. As the yarns are spun, he begins to question how much of what he’s hearing is reality and how much of it is fantasy.
The cast for the film includes Eddie Murphy, Jack O’Leary, Niall Morrissey, John Morton, Peter McGann, Aoife Spratt, Amy Dunne, Lynsey Moran, Leah Egan, Alexandra Christle, Molly O’Byrne, Paddy O’Leary and Aoibhín Murphy.
The film is written and directed by John Morton, produced by Alan Slattery and shot by Ross Costigan.
Daffney Molloy And Other Catastrophes screens as part of the Irish Shorts Programme on 9th October.
