Irish Film Institute -WILD STRAWBERRIES & BEALTAINE 2016


This month’s Wild Strawberries events tie in with Bealtaine, the annual Festival which celebrates creativity as we age. For 2016, Bealtaine takes a look at some iconic citizens, and at the cultural life of the nation across various genres and events.

As we like to connect with the land, it’s also the focus of this year’s touring film, in conjunction with access>CINEMA, in which Robert Redford and Nick Nolte rekindle their friendship through an Appalachian trek. Our second item is a moving pro le of artist Jimmy Murakami, a late citizen of Ireland. To complete the month we are showing Noble, about the indefatigable Christina Noble.
