dc.description.abstractDirector Lenny Abrahamson and screenwriter and actor Mark O'Halloran have established a formidable partnership in recent years that has produced some of the most distinctive and celebrated work to emerge in Irish cinema. Their low-budget debut film Adam & Paul (2004) enjoyed commercial success in Ireland and critical acclaim internationally, winning awards at the Sofia International Film Festival, the Gijón International Film Festival, the Evening Standard British Film Awards as well as the Irish Film and Television Award for best director. Their follow up feature, Garage (2007), won 11 major international festival awards including the C.I.C.A.E. Award at the Cannes Film Festival. They were also responsible for the acclaimed television mini-series “Prosperity” (2007). This contribution was given as part of a public interview chaired by Seán Crosson and Mark Schreiber on the occasion of the 7th EFACIS Conference, University of Vienna, 5 September 2009.en_IE
