After a paragliding accident, Philippe, a rich aristocrat, hires Driss, a young guy from the projects recently released from prison as his care-giver… In other words, the person least suited for the job. Together they blend Vivaldi and Earth, Wind and Fire, elegant diction and street jive, suits and sweatpants… Two worlds are going to collide and come to terms with each other to give birth to a friendship as crazy, comical and strong as it is unexpected, a unique relationship that will create sparks and make them… Untouchable.

65 nóimead

Rogha de ghearrscannáin comhaimseartha ina bhfuil an Ghaeilge á úsáid mar theanga bheo bhríomhar, ata an oiriúnach chun téamai agus mórcheisteanna a bhaineanna le daoine óga a phlé.

An Gadaí Stiúrthóir Niall Fallon | 23 nóiméad Is scéal é An Gadaí atá bunaithe ar ghearrscéal le Pádraig Mac Piarais. Bíonn cailín óg ag goid nithe beaga le tabhairt abhaile ag a deirfiúr a bhfuil fiobróis chisteach ag dul di. Ach tarraingíonn a cuid gadaíochta caint nuair a ghoideann sí ó chomharsa béal dorais léi. Buíochas le TG4

An Gadaí

Rubaí Stiúrthóir Louise Ní Fhiannachta | 11 nóiméad Agus an rang á ullmhú don Chead Chomaoineach, diúltaíonn Rubaí é a dhéanamh, ag maíomh gur ‘atheist’ í. Beirt Le Chéile Stiúrthóir Stephen Daly | 11 nóiméad Tar éis Eirí Amach na Cásca iompraíonn Tom a dheartháir leis chun cúnamh a fháil, ach tarraingíonn cluiche bréagaitheanta a imríonn páiste achrann orthu. Seachain an Chéim Stiúrthóir Desmond Bros | 5 nóiméad Seo gearrscannán faoin mbás agus cairdeas. An Teanga Rúnda Stiúrthóir Brian Durin | 15 nóiméad Baineann James agus a athair Michael feidhm as an nGaeilge mar theanga rúnda dá ngnó spiaireachta. Clár for-rochtana Gearrscannán i gcomhar le Foras na Gaeilge Chomh maith le gearrscannáin i nGaeilge a thaispeáint, tá lúchair orainn ceardlanna a thairscint a thabharfaidh na scannáin seo amach as an bPictiúrlann agus isteach sa seomra ranga. Ag usáid na Gearrscannáin mar bhunábhar, pléfidh lucht déanta scannáin na téamaí agus mórcheisteanna a léirítear sna scannáin leis na micléinn sa rang. Is í an aidhm atá ag na ceardlanna seo ná líofacht Ghaeilge na macléinn a neartú trí díospóireachtaí a éascú ar bhealach praicticiúil faoi leith a chuideoidh leo ullmhú don Ardteist 2014.

Disability Awareness Screening Untouchable and Welcome to Our World

150 mins 15A

“In this country we value history more than we value human rights.” “It’s the able bodied people that have the disability.” “I would love to be able to clamp every person never mind their cars, just so they can think for a minute.” These are just some of the opinions voiced by Galway-based wheelchair-users in the short film Welcome to our World. Galway is reputed to be a fun loving city for visitors and residents alike, but there is a darker side, one that is only encountered by wheelchair users, on a daily basis. Wheelchair ramps that go nowhere, no access to shops and amenities as historical preservation of buildings takes precedent over human rights, and a general public oblivious to the plight of wheelchair users are just the tip of the iceberg of a serious and all too often over-looked issue in our cities and towns. The Junior Galway Film Fleadh is proud to present a special screening of two films that deal with the lives of wheelchair users: the award-winning French feature Untouchable (French language screening see page 3 for details) and the powerful short Welcome to Our World (Ireland 2012, Margaretta D’Arcy). These films will enlighten, provoke, entertain and challenge young audiences. The screenings will be followed by a discussion which will give our audience a chance to have their say on the issues raised in the films and suggest ways they can help to make a difference.

When Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, facing international pressure, calls for a referendum on his presidency in 1988, opposition leaders persuade a brash young advertising executive, René Saavedra (Gael García Bernal), to spearhead their campaign. With scant resources and constant scrutiny by the despot’s watchmen, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and free their country from oppression. Based on real events, NO is the closing film in Pablo Larraín’s award-winning trilogy exploring Chile in the grip of Pinochet’s dictatorship.

Life isn’t easy for 10-year old Ricky - his cooler, bigger brother Micha, who just dropped out of school, is always giving him a hard time. Their parents’ business is in trouble, and with emotions running high, Micha’s conflicts with his father threaten to boil over. Things change when the tough and headstrong girl Alex and her dog move to town. Micha is very interested but she plays hard to get, so he gets Ricky to spy on her for him. In return, Micha agrees to protect his little brother from his two bully friends. Soon, however, Ricky must decide where his loyalties lie. With his brother? Or with the girl who could very well be his first true love? Not even the Chinese novice monk, Xi Lao Peng, who exists only in Ricky’s imagination and who is there when everyone else has abandoned him, can help him.
