JDIFF Announces First Four Films

Ahead of the festival in February, the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival has announced four films from it’s schedule.

The Jameson Dublin International Film Festival is delighted to announce four films that will be shown as part of the 2014 festival in February. The four films will be screened in The Savoy on O’Connell Street at 11.00am on the Saturdays and Sundays during the festival.
Tickets are available to purchase now.

Stitch together a Buñuelian satire of the bourgeoisie with the enigmatic unease of a Michael Haneke drama and the absurdist humour of Roy Andersson and you begin to have the measure of Borgman, an unsettling, blackly comic fable from veteran Dutch director Alex van Warmerdam (Grimm, The Last Days Of Emma Blank).

No Limbs, No Limits
Joanne O’Riordan is one of a handful of people in the world born with no arms and no legs as a result of a rare syndrome called ‘Total Amelia’.
This intimate family portrait, directed by her brother Steven, documents a life lived without limbs but, more than that, it’s a warm character study of a very special individual. As Joanne bravely faces her battles, we realise it is not her disability that makes her unique but her spirit and heart.

Twenty Feet from Stardom
Award-winning documentary film-maker Morgan Neville shines a spotlight on the backing singers who worked with some of the greatest musical legends of the twentieth century in this fresh and moving tribute to the blood, sweat, tears and talent of pop’s unsung heroes.

Mia Wasikowska delivers a career-best performance as a young woman attempting a nine-month solo trek across the desert in John Curran’s spectacular film, based on the true story of Australian journalist Robyn Davidson.

Tickets, and more information, are available on www.jdiff.com
