Irish Talent: New Shorts Six: Fiction

This programme features student film and work from debuting and established filmmakers. Loneliness and escapism are key themes throughout this cinematic selection of creative work.

The Passion tells the story of a young man who accidentally kills the love of his life in a car crash, and seeks resolution and escape with her mother. This psychologically complex yet subtle story brings us into post-recession rural Ireland. A community has turned its back on who they believe is a perpetrator rather than a victim. Steven has done time for the incident, and can’t find a way to reconcile himself to his new life. He turns to his dead girlfriend’s mother for solace, and a strange relationship unfolds.
