Dublin musical as Gaeilge chosen for Cannes Film Festival

With the gang from Coláiste Lurgan continuing to nail Irish-language covers such as Hozier’s Take me to Church and even The Lion King, it was only a matter of time before a musical 'as Gaeilge' made it to the big screens.

Bonsoir Luna is an Irish-language short musical romance between street artist Duke and Luna, a blind barista, who runs the George's Street Arcade coffee shop. Although it’s not not easy for the loved-up duo, Luna's mother Paula distrusts Duke, so he enlist his fellow street artists' to help win her over.

Is it just us, or does it have a very Once meets Mary Poppins feel about it? We love it!

The project - a collaboration between students from TCD, DIT, UCC and IADT - was backed by The Arts Council’s Youth Ensemble Scheme and will show at the Short Film Corner at Cannes next month.
