Director: Dunstan Bruce

78 minutes, 2014, D-Cinema

This film screened on Saturday 31st  January 2015.

We are delighted to once more present two programmes of films as part of our annual collaboration with TradFest.

This year’s TradFest screening sees the Irish premiere of Dunstan Bruce’s  new documentary chronicling the rise and fall of anarcho-punk-folk band The Levellers. A product of Thatcher’s Britain, the band rose to fame in the early ’90s before disappearing into a chaotic mire of drink, drugs and creative drought. The film explores the machinations of a group that took their inspiration from bands such as Crass and Chumbawamba. A Curious Life is a poignant and hilarious film as told by their eccentric bassist Jeremy Cunningham. As Jeremy states a ”journey through 25 years of subsidised dysfunctionalism”.

Director Dunstan Bruce will be present at the screening.

Also showing as part of IFI & Tradfest 2015 is The Long Road to Glenties, find out more here.
