Strange Occurrences in a Small Irish Village: Win 2 tickets to opening night screening + Q&A

In 1879, fifteen people in the village of Knock, Co. Mayo witnessed an apparition of the Virgin Mary. 
The village was declared a Marian Shrine and today welcomes over one million pilgrims annually. Aoife Kelleher (One Million Dubliners) builds a vibrant portrait of the phenomenon through its devotees
. With its references to ‘the scandals’, falling church attendances and the eighth amendment, the film presents a timely reflection on the position of the Church in modern Ireland and a compelling glimpse into an anachronistic but thriving world.

We are delighted to be joined by director Aoife Kelleher who will participate in a Q&A after the 18.30 screening on August 26th.
