Here's the trailer to a short film I directed called 'Rúbaí'. The First Holy Communion is fast approaching but as an atheist, eight-year-old Rúbaí refuses to be a part of it. In this quirky tale, Rúbaí faces emotional blackmail, religious and philosophical debate and out and out intolerance in today’s supposedly diverse and modern Ireland. Starring Doireann Ní Fhoighil, Dara Devaney, Brídín Nic Dhonncha and Donncha Crowley, the short was funded by Bord Scannán na hÉireann in conjunction with Magamedia Teo. It's directed by Louise Ní Fhiannachta, produced by Gemma O'Shaughnessy and written by Antoin Beag Ó Colla. Winner Galway Film Fleadh (Best First Short); Winner Charlie Chaplin Comedy Film Festival (Best Irish Short) and Official Selection in various film festivals worldwide.
