Showing as part of The Homeless Film Festival 2012

Winner of Best Director at the 2004 Irish Film & Television Awards, this contemporary and stylised comedy follows a day in the life of childhood friends Adam and Paul who are tied together by habit and the necessity of their heroin addiction. At heart it is a minimal, Beckett-esque fairytale about two young men in the grips of an unbearable drug addiction – they are shown as vulnerable, lost, and hopelessly optimistic yet the film is not without faith. Adam & Paul is a very humorous testament to the persistence of the human spirit in even the most marginal of people.

We are pleased to welcome Mark O’Halloran, actor and writer of Adam & Paul for this Homeless Film Festival screening, followed by a post-screening Q&A chaired by Festival Programmer Dean Brocklehurst.
