Maynooth Film For All’s next screening is SNAP



Maynooth Film For All’s next screening on Tuesday 13th March at 8.00pm is the hard-hitting Irish drama SNAP. Films are screened in the Iontas Building, North Campus, NUI Maynooth

This debut feature from writer-director Carmel Winters centres on the caustic Sandra (Aisling O'Sullivan of Raw and The Clinic) who wants to 'set the record straight'.

**There will be a post-screening Q&A with Winters**

Three years ago Sandra's disturbed teenage son Stephen (Stephen Moran) kidnapped a toddler; the case was a media sensation, with the public's bile directed mainly at Sandra, shattering her already fragile psyche.

Teetering on the edge of a breakdown, Sandra spits anger, hate and frustration at the amateur documentary crew that have invaded her home, and indeed anyone else who crosses her path, which includes the late Mick Lally in his last role.

Winters, who adapted the film from her own one-woman play, not only directs with a skill that belies her experience behind the camera but also elicits sterling performances from her small cast.

Yet it's O'Sullivan who dominates the film with a truly scintillating turn. A gripping psychological drama, Snap reveals hidden layers and twists as it plummets to its climax.
