Rollers.

A short documentary by photographer and filmmaker Donal Moloney, who writes:

A couple of years back I come up with a notion to document a few interviews with some older ladies who still enjoy the weekly ritual of having their hair put in rollers. There’s something wonderfully decadent about it but sadly it’s on the wane.

I had a few hairdressers earmarked around Dublin. My first port of call was one in Fairview to test the water. For various work commitments I put the project on hold. Last week I was going through an old hardrive and found this (above)…

‘Quattro Colori’ 

A trailer for a bruising new documentary by Donal Moloney on Calcio Storico – an ancient form of football from the 16th century with teams of 27 a side, using both feet and hands.

The president of Calcio Storico called it the “greatest ever” documentary made about their sport following a recent screening in Florence, Italy.

Donal says:

The 73 minute documentary will now do the festival tour before it becomes available to the general public. It’s a totally Irish production. Myself and two others shot the entire movie over a 7 month period. It’s a self funded labour of love…

In fairness.

‘Quattro Colori’ will have its first Irish screening at the Fastnet Film Festival [May20-24] in Schull, County Cork where one of the main Calciante/players will also be involved in a post-screening  Q&A.

Up The Mountain.

A short film by Donal Moloney.

Donal writes:

It’s about Eddie, a guy I met at the Ballinasloe Horse Fair a couple of years ago. I was intrigued by his tough guy look when I first saw him but found a totally different character when I said ‘Hello’. Never judge a book ‘n’ all that…

Scenes by Donal Moloney from this Summer’s Calcio Storica.

A combination of football, rugby and wrestling.

Donal Moloney writes:

It’s possibly the most dangerous sport of Earth. Back in June I crossed another one off the bucket list and had the privilege of attending Calcio Storico in Florence.

Months of planning and a hard neck had me attend the event as the only non-Italian photographer for both semi-finals. Lots of stress getting the pass but worth it. Great craic
