The Green Rabbit And The Ice Cream Girl – screenings and more

“A man is stumbling through the desert, in only underwear, lost and confused. A car pulls alongside, driven by a beautiful young girl who knows his name. His name is Gerry and it’s tattooed on his forehead. Her name is Eilis, from a pendant around her neck. With nowhere else to go, he gets into the car and begins a surreal journey to answer the reasons he’s there at all.” – Source IMDB

Written and directed by Eoin C Macken, starring Ryan Simpkins, Emmett J Scanlan and Ryan Potesta. The 18 Min short was filmed in the Nevada desert in August 2015.

Dublin actor Scanlan has finished a successful run in NBC drama A.D.: The Bible Continues. He is set to marry his actress girlfriend, former Hollyoaks co-star Claire Cooper, in New York on New Year’s Eve. His best friend Macken (32) will be by his side for the big day in December.

Raised in Dublin’s Clontarf, Scanlan is best known for his work in The Fall with Jamie Dornan.

Once Upon A Time In Dublin (3 crosses) – Trailer

UOATID2“The violent story of Jay and Jonnie Linski, two Polish-Irish brothers who try to come to terms with the brutal murder of their youngest sibling, Danny. The story follows the terrible hallucinatory visions that haunt bare-knuckle fighter Jonnie, as he battles with his own demons and a personal investigation into those responsible for the killing. As all his close relationships begin to crumble about him, he plunges head-long into a violent chain of events that will leave murder and mayhem following closely on his heels. Set in what could be any European City (and none specifically). Told through the emotional pain of the characters closest to the murdered Danny and the sometimes violent events that follow on from the actions of these same tortured few.” Written by Jonathan Figgis
