RTÉ Storyland

Faced with the eviction from her home by her own daughter, an elderly mother takes in a Refugee as freedom takes on a new relative meaning for the pair.

Shot entirely in West Cork, in the historic Drishane House, the short film is the debut role of Maurice Thom and features many local amateur actors of Skibbereen and the surrounding areas.

Yellowbird was the winner of RTÉ Storyland 2019 which is a fund that offers emerging filmmakers the opportunity to make a short film up to 20 minutes in length. The winner is then broadcast on RTÉ and is available for streaming on the RTÉ player.
