The Club Scannán Sailearna committee are currently planning the Autumn 2020 season.

Given the challenging and uncertain context in which we find ourselves things are going to be different but we are confident that with the appropriate planning our members can enjoy another successful season of films in the Seanscoil.

As we plan a way forward we would like to hear the views of as many current and past club members as possible.

If you would your views taken into account please take a few minutes to complete this short survey in which you can share your thoughts.

Cert: CLUB


This is an immersive and atmospheric documentary account of what it's like to be plunged into the revolutionary maelstrom of Tahrir Square: a world of passionate dedication and confusion; a torrent of YouTube testimony, shifting alliances and a mysterious sense that the army can go overnight from being the good guys to the bad guys and back again. Containing awe-inspiring overhead shots which show people swarming all over the city, the lesson is that only the mass physical presence can achieve dizzying (although short-term) gains. Simply retweeting revolutionary sentiment is not enough. This is a gripping story and it’s legacy is yet to be fully played out.
