Surreal in the highest, 11 April 2005
Author: Cian Duffy from Ireland

A 17 minute short that never really got much exposure at the time, and ended up on a DVD for EU Presidency delegates in 2004, My Dinner With Oswald features a man somewhat possessed with the assassination of JFK. A dinner with friends that degrades into a fight over conspiracy theories ends with unusual results...

Starring otherwise unknown actors, this short was funded almost entirely by Bord Scannan, an Irish government body, who hold a very unusual rights deal with Xtravision, a division of Blockbuster. This has unfortunately meant that this short has been shown rarely on Irish TV, and probably never anywhere else.
