‘For When I Die’.

Filmmaker Paul Power writes:

My short documentary For When I Die has been made public. It screened at Galway Fleadh, DIFF, Indie Cork, Still Voices and Dingle Film festival. It also won at the International Young Directors Awards in Cannes.

It’s about Jennifer Sleeman (top as a young woman), who is going to die. But we all die. How to accept and prepare for death is something we don’t want to talk about much. Jennifer has no such problem – even going so far as to buy her own coffin. This documentary explores Jennifer’s outlook on what a good life and a good death means to her. I hope ye enjoy…

In fairness.

‘Johnny’.

A poem by George Cummins.

George writes:

A dark poem and perhaps not what people want to necessarily hear right now, but this is definitely a time that awareness is sorely needed. With the freezing weather, the massive number of homeless currently on the streets of Ireland, and Covid changing how we interact with each other, it’s integral that people are aware of the dangers this is creating for the homeless population.

Staying in next Monday?

Sol – an inspiring film about a little boy’s journey through grief premieres in Ireland and the UK on the darkest night of the year, the Winter Solstice – Monday 21 December at 6:30pm.

The animated, 28-minute film aims to bring light and comfort to families with young children as the darkest year in modern times draws to a close.

Emmy award-winning Irish actor, Fionnula Flanagan voices Sol’s grandmother alongside Myra Zepf (author and winner of Ireland’s Children’s Book of the Year prize) voices Sol’s mother. Sol himself is voiced by 12 year old Zana Akkoç. The film’s song has been recorded by Moya Brennan, member of Celtic folk band, Clannad.

Sol will broadcast simultaneously in Irish on TG4, in Welsh on S4C, and in Scots Gaelic BBC ALBA at 6:30pm on December 21. It will also be available to view in the UK on CiTV with English subtitles at 7:30pm.
