Concrete Walls at SFF London / 3rd - 5th Feb / 2012

My feature film Concrete Walls (HD, 60mins) has been selected to screen in competition at London's International Student Film Festival. It has a beautiful score by Síol Na Gréine and an amazing screen presence by both Joseph Campbell and Shadow.

The jury includes Dave Calhoun, Jabez Olssen and Simon Pegg.

Shot on location on the grounds of the old derelict Pigeon House in Dublin the film follows the story of a mysterious loner dealing with a dark inner secret.

Ostensibly a story about a 'mysterious loner, a stranger with a secret buried deep', Concrete Walls is something much more than its submission form could convey. It is a hypnotic, wordless film of arresting beauty. While always remaining nothing less than utterly unique, at times, it recalls the work of the late, great Andrei Tarkovsky, and deserves to stand alongside such recent arthouse hits as Le Quattro Volte and Two Years at Sea as a minimalist work of immense cinematic vision. The fact that the strength of its captivating visuals are matched by its haunting soundtrack elevates Concrete Walls to the level of a tactile, sensory experience which leads the viewer, much like its wandering protagonist, through its industrial setting. Put simply, this is high level of cinema in its purest form.

Luminous Void Book Crowdfunding Campaign Launched

'Today saw the launch of the Indiegogo crowd funding campaign to cover the design and printing expenses of Luminous Void, a book-length history of the Irish-based experimental film collective’s first two decades of activity.' Since 2010 I've been involved with EFS (Experimental Film Society). We produce personal, demanding, challenging films driven by our love for pictures and sound. Not only do we produce them but we also screen, promote and archive them.
Sometimes it helps to read something about the films in the same way you might read instructions on how to operate a microwave. It helps you get the best out of a TV dinner. It helps you understand why you shouldn't dry your pet cat in it.
And so EFS are launching a book - Luminous Void: Experimental Film Society Documents. There's interviews, articles, histories and some more and being put together by a group of people very passionate about what they do! There are even super talented designers being bro…


'These programmes will consist of new assemblages of scenes edited together from the work of EFS members. The scenes might originally come from features, shorts or medium length films, but they will be compiled to form entirely new hybrid films.' - Rouzbeh Rashidi
A new and exciting venture. READ MORE Painting: Alan Beeton Decomposing c.1929
