Good Vibrations

Dir: Lisa Barros D’Sa, Glenn Leyburn UK/Ireland 2012, 103 mins 

Cert: 15

70s fashion, oodles of charm and a brilliant soundtrack. What more could you ask for on the first Friday night of this year’s Flatpack? With Good Vibrations directors Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn tackle the real-life tale of Terri Hooley’s efforts to run a record shop, and subsequently label, in one of the most turbulent areas of Belfast during the Troubles. The result is a marvellous production tinged with just the right amount of nostalgia and comic moments as we follow the difficult path Hooley walked to become a punk pioneer.

Showing with Ekki múkk (dir: Nick Abrahams, 10 mins), a beautifully odd pastoral short made as part of Sigur Ros’ Valtari Mystery Film Experiment. Stars Aidan Gillen, a fox, and a snail with the voice of Shirley Collins.
