The Legend of Irish Jack
The Legend of Irish Jack charts the life and times of ‘Irish Jack’ Lyons, the original Ace face mod and fifth member of The Who. The bands unsung muse 'Irish Jacks' life inspired Pete Townshend from the early days of 'My Generation' through to the denouement of 'Quadrophenia'
One gym, four men, no shower and Arnold Schwarzenegger. DEADLIFT chronicles the dying days of Dublin's most famous gym through four of it's long term customers eyes . Stuck together in one paint peeling melange they tell their stories. And yes Arnold really does make a very unexpected appearance.
The Raj in the Rain
Obese alcoholics, pill popping geriatric crowd surfers and astral planing pensioners. In any civilised society these people would be in care, on medication or locked up. But this is Ireland, where they are saluted, celebrated and cherished as 'The Ascendancy'.....our Aristocracy.
MacDermott and McGough were part of the fabled 1980's Lower East Side New York Art set. Warhol photographed them, Schnabel rated them and everyone knew them. Painters, time travellers, de-agers, 'present IMPERFECT' follows them on a year long journey through New York, Paris and Dublin.
P R E S S
Unique rather brilliant hilarious bizarre and touching 'The Raj in the Rain' is a fascinating film.
DEADLIFT is a fantastic melting pot of grizzled geezers and musclebound young contenders.
present IMPERFECT ... outrageous tour de farce of nature. I cant believe what I've just seen!
