The day is here!!!
Still Voices Short Film Festival 2019 is here!!!
One night, Majella O'Donnell took her teenage son Philly to be shot in both legs. Majella, Philly and his shooters all live within an extraordinary community in Derry, Northern Ireland. 'The Troubles' officially ended in 1998, but this community is still at war.
Sinéad O’Shea is an award-winning filmmaker and writer. Her first feature documentary A Mother Brings her Son to be Shot premiered at the
London Film Festival and CPH:DOX where it was nominated for a FACT Award. It was one of the most successful documentary releases in
Irish cinemas of 2018. The Oscar nominated director Joshua Oppenheimer is executive producer. In 2018 Sinéad was named as one of the
top 10 European female filmmakers to watch by the European Film Promotion network and the Sydney Film Festival. She has also directed and
produced films with Al Jazeera English, BBC, Channel 4 and RTE. Previously Sinéad covered Ireland for The New York Times.
