Out of Here

Saturday, 22nd February 2014

8:30PM @ Light House


Ciaran is a passionate yet restless college dropout who has returned home to recession-struck Dublin after a year of travelling.

Broke and living with his parents, struggling to re-connect with the ex-girlfriend that he left behind and the friends and social scene that have moved on without him, Ciaran questions whether he should stay or go – and comes to realize the difference between being stuck and being present.

Out of Here is a contemporary coming of age story shedding Dublin and its youth culture in a light not previously seen or explored.

Director Donal Foreman told Film Ireland that, “I’m very pleased to have Out of Here play at my hometown festival, especially as the landscapes and communities of Dublin play such a fundamental role in the movie. Since I was a teenager I’ve been frustrated at the dearth of films exploring the Dublin experienced by myself and others of my generation. I’m glad that my own attempt to fill that gap has found a home at a festival with a strong commitment to arthouse film and such an engaged local audience. (Also hoping they’ll move it to a bigger screen or schedule a second screening so that more people can see it, as I hear it’s already sold out!)”
