This chapter presents an interview with filmmaker Len Abrahamson. Abrahamson began shooting shorts while studying Philosophy at Trinity College, Dublin. After a period of post-graduate study in Philosophy at Stanford University in California, he returned home to concentrate on filmmaking. His first two features were collaborations with writer Mark O'Halloran. The first, Adam & Paul (2004), was included in the Official Selection at the 2005 Berlin Film Festival. Garage (2007) was the recipient of the CICAE Art Cinema Prize in the Director's Fortnight at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival. The interview covered topics such as Abrahamson's working partnership with O'Halloran and the sensibilities they share; the advances he observed between Adam & Paul and his second feature, and the main lessons he learned; and the factors contributing his spare minimalist style.

Keywords:   Len Abrahamson, interviews, film directors, filmmakers, filmmaking, Adam & Paul, Garage
