I Didn't...I Wasn't...I Amn't

Laoisa Sexton’s debut short I Didn’t…I Wasn’t..I Amn’t to play at London Comedy Film Festival

Writer/director/actor Laoisa Sexton’s debut short film I Didn’tI Wasn’t…I Amn’t (an un-romantic comedy) will feature at the prestigious London Comedy Film Festival,  screening twice at BFI Southbank on July 13th and 14th.

The film is a situational dark comic look at female sexual desire and set in North Dublin. Against all sound advice, a lonely working-class woman falls for the charms of a smooth-talking, sexy, wealthy older man, but as she grapples with her own misdeeds and wrestles with her desire- she must decide how far she is willing to go to get what she wants. The story follows one woman’s journey to attain intimacy, and explores the social contract of human endeavour between men and women in the paradox of modern life- and the ultimate transaction between strangers in the thirst for human connection.

I Didn’tI Wasn’t…I Amn’t was adapted from Sexton’s debut play For Love which premiered off Broadway at the legendary Irish Repertory Theatre. It stars Aidan Gillen, Neili Conroy, and Laoisa Sexton.

I Didn’tI Wasn’t…I Amn’t was recently nominated for Best Short Film at the ZeBBies Awards by the Writer’s Guild of Ireland.

Sexton raised all the money to fund the film via an online crowd-funding campaign, with no support from any funding body.

I Didn’t…I Wasn’t…I Amn’t will receive two screenings Saturday July 13 and Sunday, July 14th as part of the Intimate Details Shorts programme at BFI Southbank. Tickets are available now.
