Director Kirsten Sheridan, 2001 (1hr34m)

Kirsten Sheridan’s debut feature, Disco Pigs was described by Screen Daily as marking “the emergence of a real film-maker of both passion and skill.” Pig (Cillian Murphy) and Runt (Elaine Cassidy) want to live in an insular world where they make their own rules and have their own language. But, days before their shared 17th birthday, the balance of their world begins to shift and threaten their private universe. Featuring excellent performances from Cillian Murphy and Elaine Cassidy as the inseparable pair, Sheridan’s direction confidently captures the evolution of a deep but increasingly destructive relationship. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to catch Sheridan’s debut, and Murphy’s first starring film role, on the big screen!
