The Legend

Though splitting her time between the U.S. and Ireland, independent filmmaker Shannon Moncrief is no stranger to Athens. Before moving to Dublin, Ireland, where she is currently working on a documentary about the city’s underground music scene, Moncrief attended UGA and was a DJ at WUOG 90.5 FM. The Legend, her new short film set in a modern day Dublin, tells the story of a struggling playwright who seeks inspiration through whiskey and his idol, Arthur Miller, to break a ten-year writer’s block. He visits his local pub daily for the counsel of his barman, until a blonde bombshell enters his life and sets him on a path to find his true muse. The evening begins with a short reception at 7:30 p.m., and a Q & A session with Shannon and her brother, Lyn Moncrief—a professional cinematographer based in Los Angeles—will follow the screening. The event is free for members, and $5 (suggested donation) for non-members.
