Q&A Attendees *subject to change: Terry McMahon, Tim Palmer, Moe Dunford
In Patrick’s Day, Terry McMahon writes and directs about the destructive force of love, the question of sanity, the value of intimacy, the impact of memory and the consequence of choice. Patrick, a warm, open, twenty-six year old virgin schizophrenic played beautifully by the talented Moe Dunford, falls in love with Karen, a suicidal flight attendant, setting off a magical yet impossible love affair.
Convinced that Karen will either break her son’s heart or steal his affection, Patrick’s mother enlists the help of dysfunctional detective, who will use his position to help her, for a price.
With exquisite cinematography and stellar performances, audiences are skillfully guided on a ride through a chaotic circus of emotions in this provocative Irish film. –Cristin Carlin
Writer-Director Terry McMahon's controversial debut Charlie Casanova won Best First Feature at The 23rd Galway Film Fleadh and was distributed by Studio Canal. His follow up Patrick's Day has just won Best Film at The 26th Galway Film Fleadh. McMahon's next feature, the scabrously black romantic-comedy Oliver Twisted is being developed with producer Tim Palmer and The Irish Film Board. Winner of the RKO Pictures Hartley-Merrill Screenwriting Award in Cannes and the Tiernan MacBride Screenwriting Award, McMahon has lectured on screenwriting and acting in Trinity College Dublin, IADT, UCD, The John Huston Film School and The Casa del Cinema in Rome.
