Bio

 

Over the past 4 years, Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor have been working on a project called Civic Life.  Civic Life involved local community groups in the production of nine high-quality short films for the cinema, shot on 35mm cinemascope making extensive use of the long take. The films can be likened to an intricate narrative painting, revealed to the viewer piece by piece. In 2004, their film Who Killed Brown Owl won the award for Best British Short Film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.  In January 2008 their 9th and latest short film JOY won the PRIX UIP at the Rotterdam International Film Festival.  HELEN  is the culmination of the Civic Life series.
