SHORT FILMS 37: Give up yer Aul Sins

The following three films were showcased at the Briston International Animation Festival, this one winning the Audience Award. It's a hilarious film based on original recordings of Dublin schoolchildren made in the 1960s. It's a famous soundtrack in Ireland, EMI having released a CD of these Bible stories some years ago. Listening to the tale on the radio, animator Cathal Gaffney was so taken by the child's fascinating yarn that he decided to bring her to life using animation. Gaffney had to work on the film between ad jobs but has created a classic which was nominated for an Oscar.
