We kick off 2013 with a powerful programme exploring alternative perspectives on family values.  

PROGRAMME 1: THE FAMILY                
Bob Quinn’s seminal documentary, deemed too disturbing for television viewers and not broadcast until 10 years after its completion, reveals life inside the Atlantis Commune at Burtonport, Co. Donegal where its members, The Screamers, led by English woman Jenny James, practised Reichian methods of extreme emotional self-expression.

Read a note on the making of this film by director Bob Quinn.

Programme 2, Statistic, is also showing throughout January. (Double bill screenings also showing on Saturdays.)
