IRELAND ON SUNDAY: THE REMARKABLE PRODUCTIONS OF ANDREW LEGGE

Director: Andrew Legge


This film screened 28th March 2010.

FILM INFO:
The Unusual Inventions of Henry Cavendish: 15 minutes, 2005, Black and White
The Chronoscope: 20 minutes, 2009, Black and White

Ireland on Sunday, our monthly showcase for new Irish film.

Perhaps the most distinctive feature of Andrew Legge’s work to date is his uncanny ability to recreate the texture and the aesthetic of silent and early sound film,
often to great comedic effect. This programme of his work will include:

The Unusual Inventions of Henry Cavendish, a tale of a young inventor and his time machine which seamlessly combines scenes of Dublin shot in 1897 with new material shot on a clockwork 16mm Russian ‘Krasnogorsk’ camera.

The Chronoscope, a story of a female inventor who is kidnapped by the Third Reich after she invents a camera with the power to see into the past.

Fresh from a stint at the Cannes Film Festival’s Cinefondation Residence, Andrew Legge will join us for a post-screening Q&A.
