IRELAND ON SUNDAY: PARADISO

Director: Allesandro Negrini

60 minutes| Colour| Digi-beta


This multi-award-winning documentary from Derry-based Besom Productions will be followed by a Q&A.

Ireland on Sunday is our monthly showcase for new Irish Film.

Paradiso is a new documentary about The Fountain, the last protestant enclave on the west bank of the city of Londonderry. Once host to a population of 15,000 people, only 318 people now live in this highly symbolic place following one of the greatest population migrations in the recent demography of Northern Ireland.

However, a number of residents are determined to maintain a vibrant community through their own cultural endeavours: sisters Kathleen McKane and May Hamilton pursue their passion for tango dancing; local historian William Temple charts the history of his beloved birthplace; musician Roy Arbuckle celebrates the community in song and dance, and attempts to reform dance-band The Signetts in a concert that will attract formerly divided communities to dance the night away together.
