Film Screening in Abbeyleix

There's no charge for that hat [Éire/2013/14'] Shane Hogan
Tá lánún bocht i lár tíre i bhfeighil ar sean-hata atá 187 bliain d’aois. Tá clú ar an hata go bhfuil leigheas ann ar thinnis cinn agus aicíd eile
A humble couple in the Irish Midlands are the custodians of a 187 year old hat. It is reputed to have the power to cure headaches and other ailments.

The Missing Scarf [Éire/2013/7'] Eoin Duffy
Scannán le greann dubh/beochan ag cíoradh cuid de imní an tsaoil; eagla roimh an anaithnid, roimh teip, roimh diúltú agus roimh bás.
A black comedy/animation exploring some of life's common fears; the fear of the unknown, of failure, of rejection, and of death.

The last days of Peter Bergmann [Éire/2013/19'] Ciaran Cassidy
Tháinig fear a thug Peter Bergmann air fhéin go Sligeach i samhradh na bliana 2000. I rith a thrí lá dheireannach chuir sé go leor dua ar fhéin chun a chinntiú nach bhfaighfí amach céarbh é, nó cé as a tháinig sé.
In the Summer of 2009, a man calling himself Peter Bergmann arrived in Sligo town. Over his final three days, he went to great lengths to ensure that no one would ever discover who he was, or where he came from.

Beirt le Chéile [Éire/2013/10'] Stephen Daly
Tar éis Éirí Amach na Cásca, iompraíonn Tom a dheartháír gortaithe trí bhunchnoic Chill Mhantáin chun cabhair a fháil. Ach mar gheall ar chluiche páistí a bhaineann le haithne contráílte, ní thiteann rudaí amach mar ba chóir.
It is the aftermath of the Easter Rising. Tom carries his wounded brother through the Wicklow hills to get help, but because of a case of mistaken identity, things go awry.

Rúbaí [Éire/2013/11'] Louise Ní Fhiannachta
Agus an rang ag ullmhú don Chéad Chomaoineach, diúltaíonn Rúbaí páirt a ghlacadh, ag maíomh gur "aetheist" í.
As her classmates prepare for their First Holy communion, Rúbaí announces that she is an atheist and refuses to participate.

Runner[Éire/2013/19'] Paddy Slattery
Is dráma siceolaíochta e 'Runner' faoi fhear óg rathúil a mharaigh cailín óg i dtionoisc tragóideach 'buille is teitheadh' agus a dhéanann iarracht seafóideach leanúint lena shaol amhail is nár tharla aon rud.
Runner is a psychological drama about a young successful man who tragically kills a girl in a 'hit and run' accident & foolishly attempts to carry on with his life as though nothing happened.

Peripheral Vision [Éire/2013/125’] Donnacha Ó Briain
Ó 2008 tá Éire aitheanta go hidirnáisiúnta dá polaitíocht fíor-fhulangach ghéilliúil. Fós féin, tá grúpaí beaga ag déanamh iarrachtaí an pobal a chuir ar an airdeall i gcoinne tarrtháil na mbanc agus géire eacnamaíochta. Tá taithí shóisialta an mhionlaigh bheag sin á insint ag Donnacha Ó Briain (stiúrthóir a fuair árd-ghradam) sa scannán faisnéise seo a ghlac 12 mí lena dhéanamh – iad siúd a sheas an fód i rith tréimhse chinniúnach i stair na hÉireann.

Leanann an scannán cinniúint roinnt des na tionscnaimh beaga is tábhachtaí a láinseáladh i 2011-12, san áireamh Spectacle of Defiance & Hope i mBaile Átha Cliath a ghlac ionsparáid ó Réabhlóid na Fraince le leabhar ‘Books of Grievance’, agus pobal stuama Bhaile Uí Shé i gCorcaigh Thuaidh, a thosaigh mórshiúl seachtainiúil i gcoinne íocaíocht do shealbhóirí bannaí.

Déanta go simplí i cinema verité, léirionn an scannán fíricí agus frustrachas na ngníomhaithe atá ag iarraidh gluaiseacht shóisialta a thógáil i gcoinne fiacha bainc, i dtréimhse a bhfuil dearcadh polaitiúil an phobail ar nós-cuma-liom agus géilliúil.

Since 2008 Ireland has become a by-word internationally for political passivity & resignation. However, in reality, small groups have attempted to mobilize the public against the bank bailouts and austerity. This documentary, filmed over 12 months by award-winning director Donnacha Ó Briain, chronicles the experiences of some of this small minority – those who took a stand during one of the most momentous periods in Irish history.
The film follows the fortunes of some key grassroots initiatives launched in 2011-12: including the Dublin-based Spectacle of Defiance & Hope with its French Revolution-inspired ‘Books of Grievance’; and the dogged villagers of Ballyhea in North Cork, who started a weekly march against the bondholder pay-outs.
Filmed in raw cinema verité, the film charts with immediacy the realities and frustrations of those trying to build a social movement against bank debt in Ireland during an age of political indifference and passivity. [www.peripheralvision.co]
