Short Film Spotlight: Irish Goodbye

Two strangers from opposite ends of the earth meet in the City of Angels and embark upon an intense examination of trust, abandonment, tragedy and privilege in the new eighteen-minute short film Irish Goodbye.

Two strangers: a young, conflicted but devout Muslim refugee from Syria named Nizar and his night out with a quixotic Irishman, Eric. Along the way they will confront issues of trust, abandonment, tragedy, and privilege. The consequences of their adventure will haunt both men for long after the night is over.

Nizar (Abubakr Ali) is a young, conflicted but devout Muslim refugee from Syria. When he spends one unusually intimate night out with Eric (Jack Lowe), it quickly becomes clear that the consequences of their adventure will haunt both men for long after the sun has risen the following morning.

An official selection at countless LGBTQ+ film festivals, Irish Goodbye is the newest short film from prolific writer-actor-director-producer Adetokumboh M’Cormack. Born in Sierra Leone, West Africa, M’Cormack has been in the international entertainment industry for over 20 years. He has appeared in blockbuster Hollywood films like Captain America: Winter Soldier and Blood Diamond. His extensive television credits include appearances in TV shows like “Lost” and “NCIS” and has voiced characters like Nelson Mandela in True TV’s “Adam Ruins Everything,” among many other projects both big and small.
