Be in with a chance of winning the newly released and exclusive DVD collection of Thaddeus O’Sullivan’s earliest work!
Five early rarely seen films by Thaddeus O’Sullivan, have just been released on DVD by the Irish Film Institute and St Mary’s University, London as part of the IFI’s ongoing series of archive-based DVD releases. The two-disc, digitally remastered DVD features five films that O’Sullivan made between 1974 and 1985 including the BAFTA nominated The Woman Who Married Clark Gable (1985) and a rarely shown film on Jack B. Yeats (1981), as well as authoritative versions of his RCA and BFI work from the 1970s.
These early films launched a career which later included features December Bride, Ordinary Decent Criminal and Stella Days and television work that includes Amber and the Emmy Award-winning Into the Storm/Churchill at War. Working regularly in Ireland and England he occupies a tantalising position between his native and adopted cultures, existing as he once termed it, “in the crack between [British and Irish] cultures.”
As the national cultural institution for film in Ireland, the IFI is committed to making material from the collection of the IFI Irish Film Archive available through an on-going programme of DVD publishing.
