    This film contains gaps, cameras, and scenes of a feline nature. 
    Keep your phones switched on.

    February 2021: 
    I shoot an ‘against-the-odds’ documentary.
    It’s about a 24 year old (that’s me) befriending a 70 year old filmmaker (that’s Jack*), who I ethically and considerately cold-called using the number on his missing cat poster. 
    It was the start of a beautiful friendship. 
    However, due to unforeseen circumstances, I can’t show you that film. Ever.

    April 2023: You’re all invited to the premiere. 

    Poster Boy explores the joys and dangers of rubbing shoulders with strangers and wandering into the backyards of people we don’t know. In this auto(lie)ographical solo show, Lou Doyle attempts to screen an unscreenable film about things gone amiss - and the unexpected guests that show up to fill the empty gaps.
