anne maree barry says hi

I started this blog in 2007. No one had heard of The Wire and I was making experimental films that a select few saw. My initial tagline for this blog was: 'I write concisely. always. I'm trying to improve this - however, sometimes few words work better'. Then I found Twitter. However, I still post here once a week, so feel free to comment or just to simply say hii.

We Gets LOw
This is an OLD blend/bootleg that I put together on the decks circa 2006/2007. The former-man-about-Dublin-town, Skkatter, engineered and tidied it up. It's kinda girly and a bit hot - just like something I would make if I did this type of thing full-time.

Skkatter then went off to Berlin where he djs here and here . He is back in Dublin this weekend and playing at one of my favourite bars - The Bernard Shaw, on Saturday night. Download his Shaw Funk mix here- it's rather good.

Bronco BullFrog

If you did not get to see Rialto Twirlers at The LAB last month, you will now be able to see it once again, on the big screen. Rialto Twirlers (2010) is screening before the 'first film Mike Leigh should have made', Bronco Bullfrog (1969) at The IFI, Temple Bar, Dublin from June 11 - June 17.

Four decades after a fleeting initial release, one of British cinema’s great lost treasures returns to view, after the original negative was literally rescued from the bin at a film lab. Barney Platts-Mills’ debut is a soulful, unpatronising portrait of young peoples’ lives in East London’s transition from terraced housing to high-rise anomie, blending the authentic vibe of Shane Meadows with Mike Leigh’s deadpan wit. Developed out of acting workshops with local kids, it’s essentially an ill-starred romance between a welder’s mate and a schoolgirl – whose would-be posh mum’s disapproval sends them sheltering with his crooked, none-too-bright pal (the eponymous Bronco). Shot in crisp black and white, dressed in the latest Mod gear, it’s a poignantly familiar story of constrained lives, yet put together with a complete lack of dramatic fakery, totally believable performances from a largely non-professional cast, and an overall time-capsule feel that’s simply captivating. Notes by Trevor Johnston


This screening includes Anne Maree Barry's Rialto Twirlers, 6 minutes, 2010
