Here are a few of the shorts being screened at this Months Volta (August 9th)

Lackendarra: Jim Fitzgerald was like many men who went to fight in the great war in 1914, but unlike most, when he returned he couldn’t settle back into society. He fled civilization to live the life of a hermit in the Comeragh Mountains of Co. Waterford. This is the story of his life, how he etched a living on the slopes of the mountain for nearly 40 years and became known as the mysterious figure ‘Lackendarra’.

Directed by Tommy Fitzpatrick
