Patrick Kavanagh on Film

To mark the centenary of the birth of Patrick Kavanagh, the Irish Film Archive, in association with the trustees of the Katherine B Kavanagh Estate and the Patrick Kavanagh Centre, presents a programme of two documentaries celebrating the life and work of the great writer. Where Genesis Begins is the late Bill Miskelly’s 1978 documentary (retrieved by Davey Hammond and presented by Seamus Heaney) about the people and places that inspired Kavanagh’s work. The Writers: Patrick Kavanagh is a 1966 RTE documentary in which Kavanagh explores his Monaghan and Dublin haunts.
