That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore

Best Short Film

Up for the Short Film Award, this 12-minute long documentary has been compared by the Scottish Documentary Institute to “a real life Groundhog Day.” Directed by Hannah Currie and produced by Beth Allan, the film was shown at Leeds and Edinburgh Film Festival to critical acclaim. Set in Ireland, the film follows the complicated relationship between a couple 10 years after husband Paul’s life-altering brain injury, which left him in a loop of memory loss and joke telling. The film is developed through Bridging The Gap, an initiative that provides support and opportunity for emerging filmmakers in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
