Originally created as a series of short films by writer/directors Joe Lawlor and Christine Molloy, Civic Life features seven vignettes focusing on life in the United Kingdom, each photographed in a single shot in the CinemaScope aspect ratio. In Who Killed Brown Owl, a long tracking shot of an idyllic British afternoon takes an unexpected turn into dangerous territory. Moore Street follows an African expatriate as she takes a walk through Dublin and ponders her future out loud. A fund raising party for a neighborhood library goes horribly and surreally wrong in Revolution. Twilight documents a conversation by a handful of friends as the sun begins to set and one of the participants reveals she doesn't have long to live. A handful of people with an unusually urgent agenda attend a meeting of local leaders in Town Hall. Now We Are Grown Up eavesdrops on a group therapy meeting attended by a group of teens. And a young man who has just become a dad contemplates his new responsibilities during a day on the job in Leisure Center. The Civic Life series was screened as a single feature at the 2007 Rotterdam International Film Festival.
