LOST AND FOUND (2017)
Winner of the Best Foreign Feature prize at the Arizona International Film Festival, LOST AND FOUND explores seven interconnecting stories set in and around the lost and found office of an Irish train station. Daniel (director Liam Ó Mochain) tries desperately to hold on to his newly acquired job in the lost and found office. Eddie begs in the train station; every day he has a different story. Gabriel plans to surprise his girlfriend by proposing. A grandmother asks her grandson to retrieve a bracelet that she buried as a child in the garden of her childhood home in Poland. Moya visits a funeral home and signs the book of condolences not realizing the consequences. Paudge, a cranky pub owner, keeps redecorating his bar, but no matter how many grand openings he has, the locals stay away. Sile has set a date for her wedding — not having a groom won't stop her! (Note adapted from Galway Film Fleadh.) DIR/SCR/PROD Liam Ó Mochain; PROD Bernie Grummell. Ireland, 2017, color, 96 min. NOT RATED
