+ SHORT FILM

I Wake Up Screaming (directed by Chris O’Neill, 12 mins): Chris O’Neill continues his series of found footage inquiries into the haunting power of the cinematic image with I Wake Up Screaming. Images from a little-seen and underrated masterpiece of 1970s genre cinema are twisted and distorted into an unrecognisable new vision. This assault on the senses is heightened by an intense soundtrack from Texas-based rock ‘n’ roller Gabbie Bam Bam.

Both films are world premieres. Michael Higgins and Chris O’Neill will be present for a post screening Q&A.
