Award-Winning Irish Animation Gets Showing

The Irish short animation film Hasan Everywhere will be showing in the Irish Film Institute in front of the European film Lourdes beginning on 1st April.
Hasan Everywhere, written and directed by Andrew Kavanagh and produced by Ciara Gillen for Kavaleer Production, explores the story of an Israeli novelist and a Palestinian artist, who strike up a friendship during a freezing New York winter.
A passionate friendship which was impossible at home on their neighbouring crescent but flourished abroad.
This animated film recently scooped the Grand Prix award as well as the Best Use of Film or Animation award at the Digital Media Awards.
It was funded under the Frameworks scheme which is co-financed by the IFB, the Arts Council and RTÉ.
Hasan Everywhere can be seen in the IFI released ahead of Jessica Hausner's Lourdes from 1st -15th April.
