Garage at Cannes

3rd May 2007

RTÉ reports that the Irish feature film, Garage, has been selected for the Director’s Fortnight at the 60th Cannes Film Festival.

Garage is produced by Ed Guiney and executive produced by Andrew Lowe for Element Pictures, who were involved with last year’s Palme d’Or-winning The Wind That Shakes the Barley.

This is the second feature film from director Lenny Abrahamson and writer Mark O’Halloran, who were also responsible for the award-winning black comedy Adam and Paul.

Set in the mid-west of Ireland, it tells the story of harmless misfit Josie (Shortt), the caretaker of a crumbling petrol station, and his hapless search for intimacy one summer.
