Belfast 1912

Directed by Dominic O’Neill / Northern Ireland / 2021 / 10 mins


John Newell is a renowned physician, and a tortured soul. He gathers two colleagues, their wives and a mysterious medium for a seance, where he reveals a dark secret that will change the course of their lives, and possibly the world, forever.

Director Statement

I feel privileged to have made this film during such difficult times. All of the challenges we faced were overcome by an exceptional cast and crew. The film began as a stark image in my head: a group of fearful Edwardians huddled and confused around a green 1980’s radio. This quickly grew into a story about obsession and grief, and the eternal search for truth in a ever-chaotic world. I’m excited to share our strange little film with the world.
