Winner of the Best Independent Feature Film award at the 2021 Dublin Underground Cinema International Film Festival, ONCE UPON A TIME IN IRELAND — directed and co-written by Conor Slattery, who also stars — is a stylish black-and-white period piece set in West Cork during Ireland's Civil War. The story picks up in 1922 as a band of Republican IRA idealists is under siege in a tidal cave carved into the beautiful, rugged wilderness of the Irish Atlantic coast. Outside awaits a bloodthirsty force of pro-treaty British-supported troops.
