Irish Talent: New Shorts Three: Fiction

Featuring films from both new and established directors, this is an eclectic programme, hosting diverse and creative storytelling from home-grown Irish talent and international co-productions from the United Kingdom.

John Boy is written and performed by members of the Traveller community to highlight the scale and horrific impact of suicide in their community. This film portrays a Traveller man, struggling with life, yet seemingly unaware of the love and support that surrounds him.
