Beaufort to make Waves at film screening

BEAUFORT will make the French connection on Friday, January 18 when the annual film night returns for another screening at the Inn Between Bar.

French culture-clash comedy Untouchable will be the feature film on the night and the programme will begin with a screening of multi-award winning short film Wave.

Untouchable centres on the uplifting story of unemployed African immigrant who applies for a live-in carer’s job to get a signature to continue his social welfare payments. He unexpectedly gets the job and so begins a hilarious and heart-warming friendship with his new employer.

In French with English subtitles, this is the biggest grossing non-English language film of all time and is the perfect antidote to the dreary month of January.

The night’s short film, Wave, is based on a man who wakes from a coma speaking a fully formed but unrecognisable language. It was the winner of the Best Irish Short at the OFFline Film festival and won the IFTA for Best Live Action Short. Wave was also longl-isted in the Live Action Short Film category at the 90th Academy Awards while director, Benjamin Cleary, won the Best Live Action Short Oscar at the 88th Academy Awards for Stutterer.

Beaufort Film Night is a non-profit community organisation founded by local film enthusiasts whose aim is to screen cultural English language and international language films, fostering an interest in films which normally don’t get a general release screening in Kerry.

Admission on the night, which will commence at 8.30pm, is €7 which will go towards covering the motion picture licensing fee and a newly-purchased screen.
