Two Pages Two Drinks…One Shortlist

Olaf Tyarensen’s ‘Portrait’, part of a trilogy of short films has been shortlisted for the Ó Bhéal International Poetry-Film Award.

Portrait is a brief meditation on two of the biggest dangers facing a journalist with literary aspirations – alcohol and procrastination. It opens as he has just written the first two pages of a book that he hopes “will make her proud and them jealous.” It ends years later with him regretfully throwing them away, having never completed the work.

Winner to be announced on October 19.

    I’d say scrambling about trying to make a living working for rags like de heddald and hot press has sucked him dry.
