This sequence works as it would in any normal film evoking tension, suspense, mystery, empathy and most importantly curiosity. It deliberately leaves the viewer with many unanswered questions.

    TV Movie by Brendan Culleton (Documentary and History) Camera and Electrical Department Perhaps the key event of Irish history in the last thousand years was the arrival a small group of cousins on the Wexford coast in 1169. Of mixed Norman and Welsh blood, their followers predominantly Welsh and Flemish, they hurled themselves into the mêlée of contemporary Irish politics, at the invitation of the Irish themselves, and ended up almost conquering the whole country. If they had been sunk by a storm, or wiped out on landing, Irish history could have been very different. It they had succeeded in capturing the whole country, could this could have led to a happier outcome, with a strong Norman/Irish state along the lines of the English kingdom? For the King of England was also Duke of Normandy, and a vassal of the French king. Could Strongbow have become King of Ireland and still be Earl of Pembroke? Irish people still debate fervently the "800 years of oppression". In few other countries will we find events from so long ago linked with contemporary politics. Let's have a ...

    Disco Pigs (2001)
    Film by Kirsten Sheridan (Crime, Drama and Romance) Camera and Electrical Department Pig and Runt - born on the same day, in the same hospital, moments apart. Twins, all but by blood. Inseparable from birth, they are almost telepathic. They are also partners in crime, with an appetite for recklessness, exploration and destruction. But days before their 17th birthday the perfect balance of their world begins to shift. Pig's sexual awakening and increasing jealousy begins to threaten the private universe they have spent their lives constructing. Unable to contemplate the loss of Runt, Pig's unpredictable nature spirals out of control in a trail of violence. The invisible thread between them is stretched to breaking point, the inseparable are about to separate, and which one will survive depends on which one can break free. Written by Anonymous
