Windows of Wonder will screen twice during the upcoming Kerry Film Festival has also been selected to screen at the upcoming Cork Independent Film Festival. Adapted for the screen by Jason O’Mahony, Bryan MacMahon’s famous short story Windows of Wonder  focuses on a young teacher that goes to work in a remote rural village sometime in the late 1940’s or early 1950’s. She discovers, much to her dismay, that there is something wrong with the children; their imaginations are closed and they have yet to discover the wonder of the world. When she realizes that they have never heard the stories and legends of Ireland, she begins to tell them wonderful tales and little by little they come out of their shells, becoming happy, rambunctious children. What follows is a battle of wills between the carefree fun-loving teacher and the staid, sober principal with the happiness of the children hanging in the balance.
