Directed by Luke Daly and Nathan Fagan / 2020 / 20 mins


‘Flicker’ is a portrait of Danny (Peter Newington), a typical twenty-something Dubliner, who gets assaulted one night in a city centre nightclub. Escaping the incident with only minor injuries, Danny throws himself back into his old routine: early-morning classes, five-a-side football, late nights on the sesh with the lads.Pretty soon, however, Danny begins to realise that the assault has affected him in ways he hadn’t anticipated.
