Irish Film Archive: Treasures of 2001

To celebrate European Heritage week, the Irish Film Archive presents an evening of films that have either been discovered or restored by the Archive in the last year.

Highlights: 1897-2001 will include a collection of choice clips, ranging across the breadth of our collection and incorporating fiction, documentary, newsreel, experimental film and animation.

Once Upon a Tram is a beautiful film by John Sarsfield and James Maguire, with a commentary by Cyril Cusack. It depicts the final journey of the Howth tram in 1959.

The Irish Village is a 1959 documentary by James Clark about the decline of the village of Crookhaven in County Cork. The film vividly portrays a rural way of life that was endangered through emigration and economic hardship.
