A short film titled "Sightings of Bono" was shot in Dublin last weekend starring Bono, the U2 lead singer. The seven minute short was made by which has the exclusive rights to the film.

A completely Irish project, the film was written by Kathy Gilfillan and produced by Parallel Films. The story focuses on a Dublin girl called Ellen (played by Marcella Plunkett) who sees Bono everywhere until she eventually meets him in the shop where she works.

Bono arrived, relaxed and happy, on the set on Sunday afternoon to shoot the interior scenes. In between takes, Bono relaxed outside with friends and crew much to the delight of tourists, fans and passersby. Bono had a warm word for everyone including a young toddler whom he advised to "Vote for Bono".

The production then moved around the corner to shoot exteriors in front of Abrakebabra on Stephen St. A crowd quickly gathered to cheer on the singer.

The film will premiere exclusively on shortly.

I don't know! I boughts in dublin the Irish songs cd and enclosed there was Sightings of Bono. Then I red that it was shooted on February 2004 and on this web site it's reported it was on september 2000. I would like to know when it happened even if I really think it wouldn't have been happened, that is it shouldn't have been shooted. It's so silly! Why Bono let it, rather than let it go!
