Irish Film Institute -THE NOBLE CALL


Director: Ronan O’Leary

55 mins, Ireland, 2021, Digital

A rerun of the very popular filmed theatre event, with follow-up discussion. Written by Michael J Harnett, it features excellent performances from the original theatre cast, including Noni Stapleton as Mona, the eldest daughter, who discovers a family secret and confronts her terminally-ill father (IFTA nominated Vinnie McCabe). After repeatedly denying any knowledge of the reality, Da finally admits to the painful truth, in this powerful exploration of the trauma that can surface when life is drawing towards its final scene.

Writer, director and actors will attend for a post-screening Q&A.

Please note: Tickets for previously scheduled screening in May 2023 remain valid. Please contact IFI Box Office to arrange your booking to be transferred to the new date.
