Fundraising screening of Oscar winning short film – ‘An Irish Goodbye’

Sunday 2 April – 4pm – 5:30pm

Following the death of their mother, a young man with Down syndrome and his estranged brother discover her unfulfilled bucket list.

What happens when a parent dies? Many parents worry about this. So do their children. Sometimes magic happens. Sometimes your relationship with your siblings can change in surprising ways.

Join us for this half hour short movie followed by conversation with young people with Down syndrome about their acting and working lives.

Ticket costs will be donated to Inclusion Foundation to support young people with Down syndrome preparing for the workforce.

This black comedy has just won Best Short Film at the Oscar Academy Awards!

Watch the trailer here:

The black comedy has generally been given a warm reception, with Amano Miura from Dublin’s EPIC: The Irish Emigration Museum, writing: “The dynamic, hilarious, and heart-warming relationship between brothers confronts the audience with existential questions about what really matters to us and where we really call home.”

Rukayat Moibi from MySohoTimes wrote: “An Irish Goodbye is an ambitious picture that, in a satisfying and heart-warming sense, almost feels as if it could be outside of the short film genre.”

Get ready to laugh, get ready to cry!

ACMI Cinemas is an accessible venue and the film will be captioned.
