Martin McDonagh - Six Shooter and In Bruges

Sat 11 April 2020

Celebrating the early work of Academy Award winning director Martin McDonagh, we will be showcasing two films which exemplify his idiosyncratic worldview through elegant scripts and impossibly atmospheric cinematography.

Six Shooter, McDonagh’s Oscar-winning short film and directorial debut tells the story of Donnelly (Brendan Gleeson) during the pitch-black but shamefully comedic day which follows his wife’s death.

In Bruges, is McDonagh’s cult-favoured masterpiece. A Shakespearian tragedy of two hapless hitmen hidden in Belgium, the film compliments beautiful European scenery with razor-sharp dialogue to explore a dangerous and amoral world.
