In this Film Ireland podcast, Gemma Creagh talks to Antonia Campbell Hughes about her short film Acre Fall Between. Described by The Guardian as “disquietingly hallucinatory” and “dreamlike”, Acre Fall Between is set on a desolate Northern Ireland border, where a man (Mark O’Halloran) begins a desperate search for his family, knowing the future he feared is nigh.  

Acre Fall Between features in The Uncertain Kingdom – the groundbreaking anthology of 20 short films released on demand on 1st June on BFI Player, Curzon Home Cinema, iTunes, & GooglePlay.

Climate change, migration, disability, homelessness and sexuality are just some of the subjects explored in The Uncertain Kingdom, a ground-breaking anthology of 20 short films from twenty directors that together offer a unique snapshot of the UK in 2020. From comedies and dramas, through documentaries and experimental pieces, made by a mix of established names and new talent, the collection reflects the state of our nation as seen by the 20 filmmaking teams behind them.
