OUR EVENING COURSE WHICH COMMENCED APRIL 29TH WITH BOB QUINN’S POITIN WILL CONTINUE THROUGHOUT MAY WITH FILMS FROM CATHAL BLACK, KIERAN HICKEY, JOE COMERFORD AND PAT MURPHY. THE CHALLENGE TO CREATE FILMS AND AN INDUSTRY THAT WOULD, AS KIERAN HICKEY DECLARED, ‘SHOW OURSELVES TO OURSELVES AND TO OTHERS’ WAS TAKEN UP BY THESE FILMMAKERS, LAYING THE FOUNDATION STONES FOR THE ENDEAVOURS OF PRACTITIONERS TODAY. EACH FILM WILL BE CONTEXTUALIZED BY PRESENTATIONS FROM FILM-MAKERS AND CULTURAL COMMENTATORS.
By the time of his death in 1993, Kieran Hickey had directed a number of films which for the first time in Irish cinema explored middle class anxieties. In this his first feature, three male surveyors are staying in a small West of Ireland hotel where the only other guest is a French female photographer. Fascinated by her, the two married men raid her room but are caught. The film appears to underline their oppression of her but at the end, it is she who controls their image in developing a photo of them. Starring Bosco Hogan and TP McKenna, the film was scripted by Philip Davison.
