The Birth of Jesus by Give Up Yer Aul Sins

by Christine Sine

Someone just gave me the link to this delightful Irish series of videos. It includes the original Oscar-nominated short, from Brown Bag Films based upon the 1960s recordings of young children telling Bible stories in a classroom to their schoolteacher. You may have a little trouble with the accent but the humour carries through in any language.   Give Up Yer Aul Sins has screened in almost 50 film festivals, including The Galway Film Fleadh (where it won Best Animation), Cork Film Festival (Best Irish and Best International Animation), Cartoons on Bay (Special Award for Original Idea), NewYork Comedy Festival, Boston Irish Film Festival, Aspen Film Festival and Cannes Film Festival.
