2011 black comedy co-written and directed by Roman Polanski, based on the play God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza.  Two sets of middle-class parents arguing in an apartment over a violent incident involving both their school-age sons.

Martha Marcy May Marlene €8/€6

This elegantly-mounted, sympathetically-acted film conjures up a telling undercurrent of dread that’s not just about the plot turning nasty, but evokes the terrifying limitations in American life if stepping off the consumer-career treadmill leaves so many traps for the unwary.  ‘This tale of a young woman’s efforts to escape a sinister hippie cult boasts a quietly devastating central performance by Elizabeth Olsen,’ Irish Times ****

Love is in the Air in Slollywood (Er..Sligo) – a fundit project

Since September Sligo based community group ‘Sabona Community Productions’ (meaning “hello” in Zulu) have been working with local filmmaker Sinead Dolan on a collaborative project Encounter, a short romantic comedy set in Sligo; African boy meets Irish girl.

Bringing together a diverse group of international and Irish people who live in Sligo the script, which is the product of Create’s Artist in the Community scheme, reflects real-life experiences incorporating themes of difference, cross-cultural issues and identity but is first and foremost a romantic comedy.

Jonah visits Sligo from South Africa but finds himself falling for Irish girl, Bella. He quickly realizes that the ways of Sligo are quite different to home and has to learn what makes an Irish girl tick.

We have a cast and crew ready, willing and able to bring this story from script to screen. Shooting Encounter is also an opportunity for participants to gain experience and put their new skills into practice. We have commitments from a range of professionals in the area who are willing to share their skills and time, but we will need transport, some crew and equipment to realise the project.

So we need a little help, and that’s where you come in! Join our community as funders on www.fundit.ie/project/encounter where we have just launched our crowd funding campaign. You can fund as little as €5.00 so we can get ready to shout “Lights.Camera.Action”

“LOLS, this is one of our favourite project films to date! Made in ‘Slollywood’, this is community film-making at it’s best!” fundit team
