‘Moments’ to premiere at 10 Days in Dublin festival

vlcsnap-2013-02-16-13h00m43s243

 

The abstract short film Moments is set to premiere at the multi-discipline arts festival 10 Days in Dublin. It will show as part of Shorts Programme 2 on the 8th of July at 6pm and the 9th of July at 4pm. Tickets are available at http://bit.ly/12eTwvT

 

It is the first Liam Upton film to show at the festival and is an abstract piece dealing with the personal experience of loss. Filmed in south Dublin in late 2012 with no other crew, it stars Núria Gómez Navarro in her debut performance and also features poetry from the writer/actress.

 

“There was nothing planned and no script whatsoever” she explains, “everything was improvised using just the landscape and a camera. The main idea was to bring it down to its essentials and focus on the emotions, make the experience as natural as possible so  anyone who sees it can engage and find their own meaning. It’s the kind of film that each time you watch it there is something new to discover and each person you talk to will shed a different light on it.”

 

10 Days in Dublin is in its third year and aims to bring together a wide range of artistic disciplines in a single festival over the course of 9 days. Apart from film, there will also be events showcasing visual art, spoken word, comedy and music from acts such as David O’Doherty,  Baring our Ashes and North Side Drive.

Where There’s a Well… by Ted’s Beard! Productions – 4th July, 9pm

A documentary about hope and water.

‘Where There’s A Well…’ follows the journey of a water pump from factory to village in Malawi, Africa, exploring the impact clean water has on communities and individuals as they work to improve their lives.

The water pumps are provided by Wells For Zoe, a charity set up by John & Mary Coyne, a retired couple from Dublin. Frustrated at the failings of large, multinational charities, they decided to “do something” about the water situation in Malawi and ended up unwittingly pioneering a radical new model for how aid can work in Africa.

Filled with music, stunning imagery and all manner of funny and mad characters (not least John & Mary themselves), this documentary will change the way you think about “the African problem”.

Tickets €6 available from 10 Days in Dublin Box Office, No 9 Wellington Quay (next door to the Workman’s Club), by phone at 015543635, or online http://www.10daysindublin.com/programme/where-theres-a-well-by-teds-beard-productions/

Trailer on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nx7wmEahZe0&feature=youtu.be

Screening will be followed by Film Club launch night – 4th July, 23:30 until late.

 

Stick around after the screening for some late night banter with the director and production team.  We’ll have a DJ spinning some soul, funk, afrobeat and more for those that want to loosen out and celebrate our opening night at the Sugar Club.  Free entry after the screening finishes.

Onus and Splash Area double bill by Director George Clarke – 9th July at 9pm (€7 or 2 tickets for €10)

 

From award winning Belfast based indie film house, comes the latest 2 award winning films ONUS and SPLASH AREA. Shot for just £80 over 4 days in Norway, ONUS has been hailed ‘A master-class in visual storytelling’ by critics. We want to hold back as much on this, so you can enjoy the experience even more. The gore filled horror comedy SPLASH AREA (made for just £500) won Best SFX and Jury’s Choice at the 2012 Freak Show stealing the FX award from Hollywood epic, SPIDERS 3D made for $1.8 million. It has since been picked up for US release and has proven to be a disgustingly funny grindhouse production that entertains to its international audience! The director will be attending for any Q&A after both shows. You can find out more about YFP at www.yellowfeverproductions.com – Please be warned, SPLASH AREA is full of clowns!
