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.

This film takes an individual court case and creates a damning critique of wider Indian society. An unassuming gentleman boards a bus which takes him to a rally, where he is transformed into the ’people’s poet’, singing songs denouncing racism, nationalism, the caste system and corruption. His performance is interrupted and he is arrested. What follows is a series of hearings which can be interrupted at any moment as witnesses fail to show up and the police wish to gather more evidence. All the while the accused remains in jail and the court is no longer a place where truth is discovered, but rather a form of punishment in itself.

Tharlo, the film scheduled for this Thursday is not available. Instead the Indian film Court will be screened.
