Covid 19 Update

On the 6th of October the Irish Government implemented level 3 restrictions across the state. Under level 3 indoor theatre-based events are not permitted. This means that we have to cancel some of the films planned for this season and that our Autumn Season will not begin until 29th of October at the earliest.

A decision on this will be taken and announced here nearer that date. In the meantime we will be contacting all those who have already bought tickets in order to arrange a refund.

Jeannine Woods will introduce this film.

Set in the Connemara Gaeltacht, this film sets up a relationship between 18th century colonial oppression and the present day. By using the structure of a rehearsal of a play that deals with the killing of one of the few returned Wild Geese, Quinn is able to bring into sharp relief the problems in interpreting received notions of history. The local Irish-speaking cast is directed by an English-speaking outsider and soon there is a blurring between the present and the 18th-century events being depicted in the play. The actors, especially Conamara native Seán Bán Breathnach, in the title role, challenge both the English-language text of the play and the interpretation of the historical events by the outsider.
