Lenny Abrahamson (Frank, What Richard Did) has begun principal photography on the feature film ROOM, produced by Element Pictures and No Trace Camping. Emma Donoghue adapted the screenplay from her book, the award-winning international phenomenon, Room.
Element Pictures are delighted to announce that Principal Photography begins this week on renowned Polish Director’s Jerzy Skolimowski ‘s (Essential Killing, Deep End, Moonlighting) latest feature currently entitled 11 Minutes.
The film is a Polish/ Irish co-production and will shoot in Dublin for 5 days and is backed by the Irish Film Board and Element Pictures.
Richard Dormer (Good Vibrations, ’71, Game of Thrones) will play the lead role of a film director.
The film follows the same 11 minutes in the lives of several different characters; young and old, prosperous and destitute.
Some story elements surprisingly intertwine, others follow their own intricate rhythm.
Some characters are shown just as they are about to make crucial life changing decisions, others are idly passing time, caught in the midst of their day‐to‐day routines.
What they all have in common is an enigmatic sighting of the elusive dark spot, seen in the sky earlier that day, and the tragic chain of events that will seal their fate.
What really caused it? Did all of them deserve it? Could any of them avoid it? What is the fabric of life? These lingering questions constitute the film’s underlying theme.
The film stars an ensemble of other Polish actors including Agata Buzek, Beata Tyszkiewicz and Mateusz Kościukiewicz.
11 Minutes is produced by Ewa Piaskowska of Skopia Film and co-produced by Andrew Lowe and Ed Guiney of Element Pictures.
Irish audiences will get the chance to see 11 Minutes in 2015 when it’s released through Element Pictures Distribution.

“When local fishermen go missing and the shore is littered with dead marine life, the inhabitants of a small west of Ireland fishing village discover they are being invaded by enormous bloodsucking tentacled creatures from the sea.
Overrun and under attack, the hopeless locals realise that the creatures are allergic to alcohol, making intoxicated people toxic to eat. To stay alive, it’s time to rally the villagers, arm the troops…and head to the pub!”
