This film screened 8th March 2016.
One of the ‘first wave films’, set in 1970s Ballyfermot in the then new suburb of Dublin. A gang of boys plan a raid on an orchard in neighbouring territory. The Irish People called it “savage, sad, bitter, happy, tender, raw, but never once sentimental.”
Joe Comerford will present his film. He and Sunniva O’Flynn, Head of IFI Irish Film Programming, will discuss the film’s selective use of subtitling and the aims and long-term impact of the firstwave filmmakers.
