IFI Ireland on Sunday presents Opus K, on 20th November at 13.00. The new independent Irish feature arrives fresh from well-received screenings at Galway and Dublin’s Darklight and stars Patrick O’Donnell (Winner of the 2010 Best Actor Award at the Dublin Film Critics Circle Awards).
The film follows a reclusive freelance journalist, John K, who’s hired by a psychiatrist to investigate the death of a patient. The job starts out as a profitable distraction from his dying brother’s impassioned plea for a kidney transplant, but soon takes on a more sinister aspect as the case begins to mirror John’s own life. Is he being set up and groomed to replace the dead man? Or worse, to join him?
Inspired by and cleverly emulating the style of noir-ish ‘70s thrillers The Parallax View and Klute, writer/director Eamonn Gray and cinematographer/producer Basil Al Rawi succeed in creating a dark, murky world of urban intrigue.
IFI Ireland on Sunday is a monthly programme of screenings which showcases new fiction and documentary works and provides a space for audiences to engage with the filmmakers.
Eamonn Gray and Basil Al Rawi will participate in a post-screening Q&A.
