World premiere of 'Lost & Found' at Galway Film Fleadh
28 Jun 2017 :
Irish Writer/Director Liam O Mochain’s third feature film ‘Lost & Found’ will receive its world premiere at 2017 Galway Film Fleadh on Saturday 15th July.

The film will screen at the Town Hall Theatre at 6.30pm. O Mochain says on hearing the news “I was delighted, the Galway Film Fleadh is a great festival, with a particular strong emphasis on Irish and world cinema.  It will be a great launching pad for the film.”

'Lost & Found’ is a feature film with seven interconnecting stories set in and around a lost & found office of an Irish train station.  All segments are inspired by true stories, share a theme of something lost or found, and characters that come in and out of each other’s lives.  It was filmed over a 5 year period and completed in 2017. Writer/Director Liam O Mochain (‘WC’, ‘The Book That Wrote Itself’) says “that the stories in 'Lost & Found’ were inspired by stories or incidents that happened to either me, people I know or to others I was told about. I changed names, locations and details and interwove the stories and incidents together to make the film.”

'Lost & Found’ was filmed over 17 days from 2011 to 2016 in various locations in Dublin and Co. Laois in Ireland and recently completed post in Screen Scene in Dublin.  Liam says “The cast, crew and post production team were great to work with. They were very dedicated to the film and kept coming back every year to work on the next segment of the film. It took 5 years to make because of the scale of the film and because it was funded independently.”

The ensemble cast includes: Norma Sheahan (‘Moone Boy’,‘Handsome Devil’), Liam Carney (‘Red Rock’, ’Outlander’), Aoibhin Garrihy (‘The Fall’), Anthony Morris (‘Games of Thrones’), Liam O Mochain (‘Covet’, ‘WC’), Seamus Hughes (‘Jimmy’s Hall’), Olga Wehrly ( ‘Without Name’), Brendan Conroy (‘Vikings’), Barbara Adair (‘Ripper Street’, ‘Grabbers’), Tom O Suilleabhan (‘Maze’, ‘Fifty Dead Men Walking’), Diarmuid Noyes (‘Borgia’, ‘Killing Bono’), Lynette Callaghan (‘Cold Feet’), Daniel Costelloe (‘Albert Nobbs’, ‘Magdalene Sisters’) and Donncha Crowley (‘Fr. Ted’).

The creative team behind ‘Lost & Found’ are writer/director Liam O Mochain (‘WC’, ‘The Book That Wrote itself’), producer Bernie Grummell (‘WC’,‘The Book That Wrote Itself’), DoP Fionn Comerford (‘Penny Dreadful’, ‘Vikings’, ‘Roy’,), production designer David Wilson (‘Omagh’,‘Some Mothers Son’), sound Niall O'Sullivan (‘Frank’), Philippe Faujas (‘Eden’, ‘Pure Mule’), make up & hair Caoimhe Arrigan (‘Death of a President’, ‘Stella Street’), editor Ciara Brophy (Oscar nominated ‘The Crush’, ‘Savage Eye’) and composer Richie Buckley (‘WC’,‘The General’).

'Lost & Found’ is O Mochain’s third feature film.  He has also made numerous short films, documentaries and tv shows. His 2007 feature film ‘WC’ won Best Foreign Film at Las Vegas Int. Film Festival and Best Film at the Waterford Film Festival.  WC also screened at Montreal World Film Festival, Galway, Dublin, Arizona and the Cairo Int.
