1. An old explorer close to freezing in the Arctic re-lives the events that have brought him there. He recalls his student days at Trinity College in Dublin when he studied under the enigmatic Professor Orit, the professor who was driven to madness by his obsessive pursuit of the unified theory. Convinced that the answer somehow lay in the relationship between the numbers two, three and five, Professor Orit's obsession started the journey which has led his former student to the top of the world.

    Directed by Darragh O'Connell, featuring the voice talents of John Hurt and Stuart Townsend and produced by Colm Tyrrell, the film was scripted by Darragh O'Connell based on a short story by Austin Kenny. Nominated for an IFTA in 2012, '23 Degrees 5 Minutes' was funded under the Frameworks scheme from the Irish Film Board, RTE and the Arts Council of Ireland.

  2. The Lost & Found Shop has a special place in my heart. I was only 19 when writing/directing the film, and it was my first experience running a full scale production. Safe to say the journey altered the course of my life, and I'm infinitely grateful for everyone who joined our merry crew of dreamers and made this unusual story a reality.
