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.
