This Other Eden

Director: Muriel Box

1959 • BLACK AND WHITE • 80 MIN


As part of our series to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ardmore Studios, this month the Irish Film Archive presents This Other Eden, digitally re-mastered from elements preserved at the British Film Insitute.

The first Irish feature to be directed by a woman, This Other Eden is a caustic comedy set in 1945. The film explores the traumatic legacy of the Civil War. With a fine supporting cast of Abbey players from Milo O’Shea and Hilton Edwards, This Other Eden is not just a critique of the past but a witty and complex comment on an emergent modern Ireland. The film will be introduced by Dr. Luke Gibbons.
