The inaugural Puttnam Scholars hosted a private screening of their short film Glossolalia for Lord David Puttnam in Hayfield Manor. Based on an original storyline by Lucy Creedon and directed by Oisín O’Driscoll and Ben O’Callaghan, the cinematography and editing were undertaken by Eli Dolliver. Sound design was by Andrew Killian, who also composed the film’s score while Liam Fleming worked on set design and casting. The film stars Linda Flaherty in her first film and Eanna Hardwicke, who is currently working on Vivarium (Lorcan Finnegan) and Netflix’s adaptation of Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People (Lenny Abrahamson and Hettie Macdonald). It also features Eoin Burke, a regular in Cork short films and Issey Fenton, from the Gaiety School of Acting who is also a UCC graduate of Theatre and English.
The premiere of Glossolalia will take place in the Cork Opera House in 2020.
