Director Statement

The creative intention of Ó Lá Go Lá (From Day to Day) is to make a film that resonates with positivity in the seemingly endless contradictory age of Covid. The film is an uplifting look at loneliness and conquering the demons.

From the initial meeting with the lead, Mick, he is gruff and grumpy. In casting Paddy C Courtney as Mick we have a strong actor with a characterful face playing our seemingly dour lead. In contrast Paddy’s face when he breaks into a smile also lights up the screen. That juxtaposition in expression is a huge factor in the turning point of the film, that sea change from troubled to elated will encompass the emotional heart of the story.

The story is a snapshot of a key time in recent history and it is imperative to do it justice, to realistically portray the monotony and loneliness of isolation, mirrored with the joy and freedom and laughter of when there is music and community.
