“Aunt” film short

“AUNT”   film short

Directed by Narayan VanMaele and Produced by David Lester

This was an IADT (National Film School) graduation short, based on a true story, set in the 70’s and shot on location on Achill Island.  I played the part of Margaret, grandmother of a baby who’s been born out of wedlock.  This is the baby’s christening day, and in the midst of a seemingly happy family is Kate (played by Una Kirwan) the Aunt who is devastated to be handing the baby back to its mother (Louise Lewis).  

Aunt has won the Royal Television Award (Ireland), has been shortlisted for the Celtic Media Festival Awards, and is an “official selection” of the International Film Festival Indie Lisboain Portugal in April.

Screening is yet to be announced.
