The World is Mine

Screening Time 12pm

"Talented fans constantly re-create her that's why she never dies. She is a creative instigator. A collective fantasy. A social glue. Hatsune Miku is the future."¬ Hiro San

A western Cosplayer (costume player) obsessed with the cyber diva Hatsune Miku, moves to Tokyo to look for an identity in that fan world, where she is drawn into a love affair with one of the fans and looses herself in the virtual star. Hatsune Miku is a "vocaloid", a synthesizer software. Her entire persona: lyrics, music and animation - is fan created, and that's her charm. This film is a journey into a world where fantasy is more real than reality and the differentiation between the two becomes obsolete. The director was transformed into the protagonist cosplayer among real fans, with voiceover narration woven of fan lyrics, revealing their fantasies.

Written, Directed and Produced by Ann Oren

Touch of an Angel 

Screening Time 1055am
 Touch of an Angel  took five years to produce.It’s a very personal, poetic tale of a deaf man who returns to the places where he found refuge as a boy. He finds his hiding places bringing back horrific memories. Sounds return to him, which as he describes "shut in him like in a shell". It’s not just a wartime story but an account of how even the smallest gesture can save a life. The film presents completely unknown facts about the existence of a failed Bureau of Emigration of Jews to Palestine in Auschwitz town, run by Schoenker’s father. What went so terribly wrong in a place which became later infamous for its gas chambers? Schoenker speaks about it boldly, looking directly into the eyes of the viewer.  Schoenker is a painter. Art played important role in his family’s history. That’s why I decided to use an innovative language that I call archicollage. It requires viewer’s imagination but I believe that it’s self-explanatory. - Marek

This is Palestine

Screening Time 230pm
‘This Is Palestine’ follows the journey of Riverdance founder John McColgan through the West Bank and Gaza as he explores the impact of ongoing conflict and military occupation on the people who live there. The documentary features powerful interviews with people who have lost their home, land and family members as a result of the conflict. As well as meeting communities under threat, McColgan also spent time with Israeli and Palestinian peace activists working to bring this long-standing conflict to an end. ‘This Is Palestine’ was co-produced by Tyrone Productions and Trócaire to mark the 50th anniversary of the military occupation of the West Bank.

Notes on Rave in Dublin

Screening Time 455pm
“What’s your name? Where ya from? How many ya on?” Notes on Rave in Dublin is a roller coaster ride through the birth pangs of dance music in our dirty old town. From the democratic romance of those early loved up dancefloors to how a cold social stratification and commercialisation crept back. That left it up to a network of outsider labels, pirates, and ravers to establish the indigenous scene that we now call our own. This is a story of how an underground works, mutates and survives.
