ARCHIVE AT LUNCHTIME: DOUBLE BILL (PROGS 1 & 2 – AUG 2014) FREE EVENT

Join us for Free lunchtime screenings of films from the IFI Irish Film Archive. 

We continue our investigation of the Radharc Collection of over 400 films made by a group of pioneering clerics between 1962 and 1996. The team produced consistently insightful, often radical work exploring social, political and religious issues in Ireland and throughout the world.

PROGRAMME 1:

CHRISTY BROWN

An interview with author and painter Christy Brown (later the subject of Jim Sheridan’s feature film, My Left Foot) and with his mother. The programme shows how Christy typed and samples of his paintings. 

SUNSHINE HOUSE
The holiday given to 120 boys and 120 girls from disadvantaged areas each summer at Sunshine House, Ballbriggan.

FILM INFO: 27 minutes, 1962

 

PROGRAMME 2: INISHEER
A young priest arrives on the island and faces the challenge of language, weather and the isolation of island life where there are neither roads, nor motor cars and the schoolchildren are exiled for secondary education to the mainland

FILM INFO: 27 minutes, 1970

Four different programmes of films will screen at consecutive lunchtimes throughout August (with double bills on Saturdays). Please ask at the IFI Box Office for dates and times, or check this Events page. Simply book your FREE seat by contacting the IFI Box Office on 01 679 3477 or emailing boxoffice@irishfilm.ie (given that events can sell out, please note that your emailed booking requests must be confirmed by reply email from the Box Office in order to be considered valid).
