Did you Miss? Back By Popular Demand

–Films from the Irish Film Archive for December

Irish Film Institute monthly screenings from their Irish Film Archive have become so popular that screenings regularly sell out. Throughout December they’re giving you a second chance to see some of the most popular titles.
Irish Destiny
Irish Destiny

Irish Destiny, dir George Dewhurst, B&W & colour, 74 mins, 1926 Dec 9th, 2.30
Irish Destiny is perhaps the most significant films made in Ireland in the silent period. It is a love story played against the backdrop of the War of Independance which ingeniously incorporates newsreel footage of the Black and Tans and the burning of Cork within the dramatised narrative. For decades believed lost, the Irish Film Archive has now restored Irish Destiny –- to its original glory it is presented with Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin’s recently-recorded score – which was performed by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.

South, dir Frank Hurley, B&W, 80 mins, 1914, December 10th , 2.30
Filmed by expedition member, Frank Hurley, South chronicles the attempt by Shackleton and his team of 27 men, to cross Antarctica via the South Pole and records their plight when their ship, Endurance, was crushed by heavy ice, leaving them stranded for almost two years and fighting against conditions that made survival look impossible.

Paddy- dir Daniel Haller, 97 mins, 1970, Dec 18th, 6.45
Adapted by Lee Dunne from his notorious novel Goodbye To The Hill, Paddy was banned by the Irish censor in 1970 due to its sexual frankness. It finally received its Irish premiere this year and stars Abbey actor Des Cave as an ‘Irish Alfie’

Flann O’Brien’s At Swim Two Birds , 90 mins, 1997, Dec 19th 6.45
Austrian avant-garde theatre director Kurt Palm adaption of Flann O’Brien’s beer-soaked, brilliantly funny, modernist masterpiece for the screen

Girl With Green Eyes, dir D Davis, B&W, 1964, Dec 30th , 7pm
Rita Tushingham in this adaptation by Edna O’Brien of her autobiographical novel The Lonely Girl.
