Reel to Real + The Stove Cafe Present: Four Seasons in a Day

October 7 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

A Verdeke | 2021 | 75 mins | English

In the North-East of the isle of Ireland, the border between the Republic of Ireland and the UK runs in the middle of a beautiful glacial fjord, the Carlingford Lough.

The Carlingford Ferry crosses the Carlingford Lough on a daily basis, bringing people from one side to the other. We meet several characters from North and South, with different points of view, making this soothing journey through the magnificent, green Irish landscape.

The film explores the concept of identity and community on an isle divided by not one, but 2 borders: a physical one between the UK and Ireland, and mental border between seemingly incompatible opinions on the role and signification of the border. Opinions that often tend to change when personal factors surpass the ideologic.

The water between each side may be very deep, they all have the unpredictable weather in common. But does the local expression ‘4 seasons in one day’ only reflect on the weather? Four Seasons in a Day is part of Borderlines, a collection of six authentic border stories across Europe reveal the controversy and complexity of what symbolic dots and lines on the map could become when cutting into actual peoples life.
