Irish Talent: New Shorts Seven: Documentaries

This strand showcases a diverse range of short documentary films. We explore different themes surrounding present-day social and global issues, in a variety of styles. Showcasing Irish work from debut directors and more established filmmakers.

Keith Byrne (10) and Noel Murray (13) from Darndale had run away before, but evading the authorities in three countries was a first – even for them !

On August 4th, 1985 they began an incredible adventure that would see the young duo leaving home and eventually ending up in New York having arrived there on an Air India flight from London. Their journey baffled security in three countries, caused a major terrorism alert and left their parents in the dark about their whereabouts for days. Now thirty six years later and for the first time on screen together, Keith and Noel recount their adventure. Their story had the Irish nation talking as they created international headlines, however they reveal the life that followed after the headlines faded. A nostalgic trip of adventure with two men who ran away from home and captured the heart of the nation.
