twitter.com/sfingali SLR is a short thriller about a man obsessed with “voyeur pornography”. When he makes a shocking discovery online, he is forced onto the trail of an anonymous photographer known only by his user name of ANORAK.
In the tradition of BLOW-UP, THE CONVERSATION and HARD CORE, SLR puts a morally compromised man through the meat grinder of his own behaviour. The film was one of 16 shorts made through the BFI Shorts/ Lighthouse scheme, and stars noted Irish character actors LIAM CUNNINGHAM and RICHARD DORMER, both of whom are stars of GAME OF THRONES. It was nominated for an IFTA and won Best Irish Short at the Academy-recognised Foyle Film Festival. SLR is being put online in conjunction with a companion film called SELFIE – see here vimeo.com/84851890.
