We are delighted to announce that we are currently in pre-production for our first feature film Dublin Berlin. The much anticipated debut feature film from director Robert Manson is a pulsing drama set in Berlin. "Dublin Berlin" follows a young man, Oisín, who travels to the city with his band, buzzing with the potential of a tour and escape from his troubled family life. Oisín meets Sabine, a pretty young Berliner, who shows him the secret places that belong to the the city. The band lose patience with him and move on. He decides to stay.
But this time of simple pleasures is thrown into a tailspin when Sabine reveals that she has a boyfriend and is, herself, escaping from reality. He’s lonely, homesick and broke. Distraught, he makes his way through the streets of Berlin and begins sleeping rough. His path becomes one of determined self destruction. Unwilling to return home branded a failure, he cannot look for help. It takes an act of great intervention to save him from the void.
We are happy to announce that we have a new short in pre production. Ruairi McKenna's 'Gloam' is an observational piece set in a lighting emporium in Dublin. The film is due to be shot over the next few weeks, check back for updates.
Rickshaw Rick and Downriver will be screening at the 11th Belfast film Festival this coming Saturday. It is included in the Short Film Competition - Programme 3 - 16:00 - at Queen's Film Theatre
