ARCHIVE AT LUNCHTIME: PROG 1 (FREE EVENT- AUG 2014)
Join us for FREE lunchtime screenings of films from the IFI Irish Film Archive. Simply collect your tickets at the IFI Box Office.
We continue our investigation of the Radharc Collection of over 400 films made by a group of pioneering clerics between 1962 and 1996. The team produced consistently insightful, often radical work exploring social, political and religious issues in Ireland and throughout the world.
PROGRAMME 1: CHRISTY BROWN
An interview with author and painter Christy Brown (later the subject of Jim Sheridan’s feature film, My Left Foot) and with his mother. The programme shows how Christy typed and samples of his paintings.
The holiday given to 120 boys and 120 girls from disadvantaged areas each summer at Sunshine House, Ballbriggan.
Four different programmes of films will screen at consecutive lunchtimes throughout August (with double bills on Saturdays). Please ask at the IFI Box Office for dates and times, or check this Events page. Simply book your FREE seat by contacting the IFI Box Office on 01 679 3477 or emailing email@example.com (given that events can sell out, please note that your emailed booking requests must be confirmed by reply email from the Box Office in order to be considered valid).
These screenings are complemented by an online exhibition of related material from the Radharc Document archive which is also preserved in the IFI Irish Film Archive.
