Mr Yeats and the Beastly Coins to screen this weekend at inaugural Deep Focus Film Festival
The After 16 short film Mr Yeats and the Beastly Coins will screen at the inaugural Deep Focus: Women in Film Festival in the Triskel Arts Centre in Cork this weekend. The festival is a celebration of female directors who tackle a wide range of subjects with unique and distinctive voices and boasts a programme of ten features and ten short films which will screen from 6th – 8th May.
Mr Yeats and the Beastly Coins was written by Anne Marie Hourihane and co-directed and co-produced with Laura McNicholas. Featuring the voice of Moe Dunford (Patricks Day, Vikings) the short film takes a unique look at W.B. Yeats as a politician rather than as a poet and his role in the foundation of the Irish state.
The film will screen in the Deep Focus Shorts programme on Sunday 8th May at 10.30am and director/producer Laura McNicholas will be in attendance to introduce the film.
The After 16 short film scheme was funded by the Irish Film Board with a view to commemorating, celebrating and ruminating on 1916 and how the events of Easter Sunday and beyond forged the landscape of the century that followed.
The Deep Focus: Women in Film Festival takes place 6th – 8th May in the Triskel Arts Centre in Cork.
