JDIFF: THE YELLOW BITTERN

Director: Alan Gilsenan

Ireland • 2008 • Colour • 100 min


The Yellow Bittern charts the remarkable rise to fame of the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem from their small-town beginnings in County Tipperary to the folk hey-day of Greenwich Village in the Sixties where they out-sold The Beatles and influenced a host of artists from the young Bob Dylan to Pete Seeger. But the film also delves deep into the psyche of Liam Clancy as well as his dark and troubled personal life where excesses of rock-and-roll found their way into the world of folk.Bookings: 01 672 8861 www.jdiff.com
