Progressive Film Club: Four Films - Four Premierres

category dublin | arts and media | event notice author Sunday May 14, 2017 21:03author by pfc - Progressive Film Club Report this post to the editors

The Progressive Film Club are delighted to feature four new films in our last screening before a much needed summer break. It's a varied programme with two shorts - one the multi-award winning "Through the Wall", which was the outstanding work from this year's "Latin American Shorts" film festival. The other short "To Help US" is a very clever (and really short) work from a newcomer.
We follow with a film about the privatisation of Greek water. Many of the issues will be familiar to Irish people but the results of a failure to win this battle are very evident in this film.

Our final film, with a background of stunning scenery takes us up K2 and focuses on the everyday dangerous working conditions and pay of the sherpas who porter for the international expeditions climbing the mountain. This film has won several prestigious international awards.
A great final programme - not to be missed!

At : New Theatre, East Essex Street, Dublin 2.
Saturday 27th May 2017


The Progressive Film Club’s May free screening:

3pm To Help Us – 2mins
Labour-themed short, first shown at the Workers Unite Film Festival in NYC.

3.02pm Through the Wall – 6mins
Donald Trump talks about building a wall but there’s one there already. A short documentary about a family divided by the US/Mexico border. Abril lives in the US with her 2 year-old. The hit of the recent Latin American shorts festival in Dublin

3.08pm Something in the water – 17mins.
“Something in the water” reveals the web of special interests, diplomatic ties and corporate influence behind the privatization of Greece's public services.
The film focuses on the story of the water supply of Thessaloniki, where, despite 98.2% of voters choosing to maintain public control, the Troika continues to push for privatization, with French multinational Suez set to buy a significant share.

3.45pm K2 and the Invisible Footmen – 55mins
Filmmaker Lara Lee and team chronicle the lives of both Pakistani porters and Nepalese sherpas. Despite being paid at rates far below those received by international expedition leaders, such porters—whether they provide critical supplies to expedition base camps or take on higher-altitude tasks in support of ascending climbers do some of the most difficult and dangerous work and these efforts make them worthy of recognition as the true heroes of mountaineering.
