This Lenny Abrahamson film came out in 2014, but you can watch it on Volta.ie for free as part of its View it on Volta campaign. Inspired by the real-life story of Frank Sidebottom, it’s about an eccentric musician and the terrible keyboardist (Domhnall Gleeson) who starts playing in his band.

Brother Ezekiel

This American short film was produced by Irish animation company Boulder Media. It’s about a black man travelling across mid-60s America who stops at a motel for a quiet meal and a rest… but interest from the locals is both a blessing and a curse.
