One Hundred Mornings is set in a world upended by a complete breakdown of society, two couples hide out in a lakeside cabin hoping to survive the crisis. Filmed on location in Co. Wicklow, Ireland. It is the third and final issue from Project Catalyst, the Irish Film Board’s 2007 micro-budget initiative. The film stars Ciaran McMenamin (The Last Confession of Alexander Pearce), Alex Reid (The Descent) Rory Keenan (Intermission), and Kelly Campbell (Bachelors Walk).
Another Irish Times four star, One Hundred Mornings has screened at a host of international festivals since it debuted at the Slamdance festival in January 2010 and also had a successful limited release in Brooklyn, New York in March this year, receiving glowing reviews from the critics:
"Playing like balm to the soul of anyone quivering from too many overworked, over-agitated multiplex experiences, Conor Horgan's "One Hundred Mornings" uses an apocalyptic event as a springboard into the human psyche" Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
"Conor Horgan's film smartly takes the short view of end-of-the-world survivalism" Andrew Schenker, Village Voice
"A taut, compelling drama that sucks you in and won't let go" Ross Whitaker, Film Ireland Magazine
"One Hundred Mornings is both harrowing and humorous, though the overarching tone is one of grim stoicism. Horgan elicits some fine performances from his tiny cast, and a cloying claustrophobia is expertly juxtaposed with a vast, surrounding emptiness." Fiona McCann, Irish Times
"It’s not only a very fine picture; it’s practically a ransom demand for like-minded schemes. More movies like this one, please". Tara Brady Irish Times.
