EVERY FRIDAY,TheJournal.ie presents a brilliant Irish short film for you to enjoy as you ease into the weekend…

This week: Rapunzel – The Blonde Years

It’s as short as they come, but this little gem packs a funny and powerful punch. Purportedly the real tale of how Rapunzel’s fairytale came true, this Fiona Ashe-directed film suggests that it’s not always worth waiting for a knight in shining armour to come to the rescue…

Rapunzel, produced and written by Trish Groves, was filmed under the Irish Film Board’s low-budget Virtual Cinema scheme.
