Song of the Sea (2014)
Dir. Tomm Moore

The story, based on the ancient Celtic myth of the selkie, concerns two children, Ben and Saoirse, who live in a lighthouse by the sea with their father, Conor, who remains distraught over the loss of his wife several years earlier. Though Ben is aware of the responsibility that comes with being a big brother, he is easily frustrated with Saoirse, who, at six years old, has yet to utter a single word. When Saoirse discovers a shell flute that used to belong to their mother, the spellbinding music she creates becomes both a means of communication and the key to a magical secret locked deep in their mother's past.

The Bachelor Weekend (2013)
Dir. John Butler
94 min.

Self-confessed metrosexual Fionnán doesn't want a stag-do, but would happily attend the hen.  Ruth, the now concerned bride-to-be, promptly persuades the, marginally more-macho, best man to organise one. Reluctantly, he agrees but proceeds to do everything he can to stop Ruth's wildly infamous brother, known only as The Machine, coming along for their sober, walking-weekend, excuse for a stag party. But The Machine, not so easily foxed, tracks them down, and what follows is a hilarious few days in rural Ireland where the Stags find themselves lost, shot at, stoned and butt-naked.

An Píopa / The Pipe (2010)
Dir. Risteard O'Domhnaill
80 min.

Irish with English Subtitles

A compelling documentary film four years in the making, The Pipe tells the story of the small Rossport community which has taken on the might of Shell Oil and the Irish State. The discovery of gas off this remote coastal village has led to the most dramatic clash of cultures in modern Ireland. The rights of farmers over their fields, and of fishermen to their fishing grounds, has come in direct conflict with one of the world's most powerful oil companies. When the citizens look to their State to protect their rights, they find that the government has put Shell's right to lay a pipeline over their own.
