Import/Export Q&A with Ulrich Seidl

Thu, 25 Sep 2008 13:14:00 +0000

We were delighted to welcome director Ulrich Seidl to the screening of Import/Export after which he took part in a Q&A. Both confrontational and compassionate, Seidl’s tale of migration and social borders weaves its way through contemporary Europe as it interrogates the political, cultural and economic forces which shape life here. Moving in diametrically opposed directions, the film traces two of its citizens’ peripatetic journeys toward a better life: nurse Olga leaves the poverty of the Ukraine for a new start in Austria, while unemployed Austrian Paul heads to the Ukraine in search of work and meaning.

EDEN: Q&A with Aidan Kelley

Fri, 19 Sep 2008 19:25:00 +0000

Set in a thriving town in the midlands of Ireland, EDEN tells the story of a week in the lives of Billy and Breda Farrell as they approach their 10th wedding anniversary. Breda is determined that the milestone will re-ignite the passion in their marriage. Billy’s got other plans. He’s become infatuated with the unobtainable Imelda Egan and has convinced himself that they will be lovers by the weekend.

As the date draws closer, Billy's behaviour becomes more and more chaotic, while Breda's frustrations crystalise and find more mature, high-risk expression. EDEN is the screen adaptation of Eugene O'Brien's critically acclaimed, award-winning play of the same name, marking the second collaboration by director Declan Recks, Eugene O’Brien and RTÉ Television.

We were delighted that lead actor Aidan Kelley was able to be present for the screening on Friday 19 September.  EDEN is screened again on Saturday 20 September.

An open-air odyssey to open the Festival

Tue, 16 Sep 2008 16:48:00 +0000

The Festival kicked off with two open-air screenings of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY in front of the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge, and we were there to talk to the audience and the organisers of this extraordinary event.

Linha de Passe

Wed, 10 Sep 2008 13:04:00 +0000

Our opening night film is LINHA DE PASSE.

Sao Paulo. 20 million inhabitants, 200 kilometres of traffic, 300,000 messengers on motorcycles. At the heart of one of the toughest, most chaotic cities in the world, four brothers try to reinvent themselves in different ways. With the backdrop of Brazil in a state of emergency, each one is looking for a way out…

This effort from Walter Salles (THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES) and his frequent collaborator Daniela Thomas (MIDNIGHT) is a characteristically humane and intelligent work. Steadfast in its refusal to glamourise violence and the extremity of the environment which the film’s characters are forced to inhabit, LINHA DE PASSE exudes compassion, drama and insight.
