Drying in the Rain

With an incubation period of 7 years ‘Drying in the Rain’ features a male figure standing alone in a woodland meadow drying himself in the rain. The film explores the notion that there is no perfection in anything; that, even though the world, our lives and hearts are flawed, does not mean that we are excused from rejoicing.

Directed and filmed by Eugene O Connor, Music by Dave Keary, Edited by Ben Milling & Paddy O Shea, stills by Jamie Tanner

Fallen Angels

A match is lit, a leap of faith, a physical step, deliberate!

Smoke rises slowly, intoxicating and unholy, the angel begins to almost breathe fire as it looks peacefully at us, accepting its fate. We are helpless. The angel is being burned. Our faith is questioned.Is this a vision of hell or the beginning of a new life?

A lonely beach, the ocean takes the angel, breaking it like a shipwreck.It comes apart and floats out to sea and is washed up on the beach.Is this a hellish act of destruction or is it a heavenly cleansing? Earlier in the film we have become acquainted with these beautiful creatures, their faces so innocent and calming.

We have felt their loss, sad to lose them, but are left with a feeling of hope and comfort.

I WOULD NEVER THROW MY KNICKERS AT YOU

Maurice began by asking women for a pair of knickers for an installation. After a press frenzy on the project, Maurice received knickers from women in USA, Canada, Australia, UK and all over Ireland.
