The Oscar-qualifying short film, A Day For The Fire, written and directed by Maurice O’Callaghan (Broken Harvest) featuring Jonathan Ryan and Jon Kenny, will be screened as an official selection of The Boston Irish Film Festival 20-23 March.

In A Day For The Fire, a man returns to his native village after a twenty year exile. He meets another man in a rural pub who reveals during a brief conversation that his son has taken his own life. The casual admission of this tragedy shocks the viewer into the realization that even in such an idyllic landscape the pressures of modern life can take their toll.”
