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.

 

Mother Ireland

Director: Derry Film Collective
Ireland 1988
54 minutes
 

 

Margo Harkin will introduce this film.

A feminist nationalist re-appraisal of the representation Ireland and Irishness, this radical film by the Derry Film and Video Collective features interviews with Nell McCafferty, Margaret MacCurtain (Sister Benvenuta), Bernadette McAliskey (Devlin), Mairead Farrell and filmmaker Pat Murphy. A few months after the making of this film Mairead Farrell was murdered by the SAS in Gibraltar and the planned broadcast on Channel 4 (UK) did not occur until 1991.


Cumann na mBan – Mná na Réabhlóide

Director: Colm Bairead
Ireland 2015
53 minutes
 

 

Mary Clancy will introduce this film.

Between 1914 and 1923 thousands of Cumann na mBan women participated in the nationalist struggle, however much of the work, activities and achievements of the Cumann na mBan women has been rather effectively airbrushed from Irish revolutionary history, identity and citizenship since the formation of the Irish State. This documentary offers the opportunity to bring the contribution of nationalist women to the Independence struggle into the light. The documentary is narrated by Mary McAleese.
