A SHORT FILM, directed by Niamh Collins
ELF – Emerging Limerick Filmakers
Mob the Trench is set in a future where a 130 year old priest (Arthur Riordan) is confronted by an angry mob where a mixed nut sorting machine has disproven the existence of God, bringing his own faith into question.
The film opens with a woman (Rose Henderson), a community leader with a prosthetic eye, is watching an advert for Huxley’s mixed nuts. Incensed by what she now believes are lies told to her by the Clergy, she rallies and coordinates the mob.
It’s an ambitious, unusual and unique project supported by the Arts Council of Ireland, Screen Ireland, Limerick City and County Arts Office and the National Youth Film and Animation Network. We’re working with Odyssey Studios, the Screen Composers Guild of Ireland, Fantastic Films and our crew of experienced young filmmakers (who have been at this for three years) are writing, directing, shooting and leading the project in all areas. Mob the Trench will be premier at DIFF.
