27 mins – Ireland 2020 – Dir: Aisling O Connell & Maximilian Le Cain
Starring: Aisling O Connell and Maximilian Le Cain
The world premiere of a new film by Cork-based experimental filmmakers Aisling O Connell and Maximilian Le Cain. During the first lockdown the two artists exchanged footage that they gradually shaped into a mysterious ‘call and response’ filmmaking exchange. The result is a haunting and immersive collage of personal imagery adrift on tides of obsession. Central to this journey is the idea of ornithomancy, the art of reading omens from the actions of birds.
121 is available to rent for €2.50 and the proceeds will be split between the filmmakers and ourselves. To view, simply click on the ‘Rent Now’ button on this page. The rental period is for 72 hours.
Triskel recommends – the short film edition
During the first lockdown, when Triskel Arts Centre was unable to screen movies as a collective experience and people were staying at home in self-isolation, we decided to highlight quality films which we thought our patrons would enjoy. Each week we mixed movies to rent and movies which were free to view, international and national cinema, and links to streaming sites and content that we curated ourselves. And we’re doing it again! We know the Christmas break isn’t a lockdown but people are still cosying up at home and we wanted to suggest a few short films for you to rent and enjoy. Some were screened at Triskel Cinema, one appeared as part of an exhibition in 2016 and one is a world premiere.
