The Camino Voyage Official Trailer
Playing at the IFI from November 23rd 2018 https://ifi.ie/camino-voyage There will be a Q&A screening with members of cast and crew on November 28th at 18.30. A crew including musicians Glen Hansard and Brendan Begley, artist Liam Holden, stonemason Brendan Moriarty, and the late writer and poet Danny Sheehy embark on a voyage to the Camino by sea. Together they take their naomhóg, a traditional boat they built themselves, on a gruelling 2,500km modern day Celtic odyssey all the way from Ireland to Northern Spain. Pulling into coastal towns and villages en route, camping, cooking and nursing their blisters, this eclectic crew forged many new relationships, surprising those they met with the simplicity of their vessel and inspiring them with their courage, endurance, storytelling, music, poetry and song. Dónal Ó Céilleachair’s uplifting and extraordinarily beautiful film celebrates this expedition which, in the words of the late Danny Sheehy, led to the ‘deepening and renewing of friendships, creativity and spirituality’.

IFI Irish Film Archive Preservation Fund
Saoirse Ronan is digitally transported into a century of Irish films to launch the IFI Irish Film Archive Preservation Fund -- a major new initiative to secure the future of Ireland's film heritage. Visit http://www.ifi.ie/support/donations/ and donate TODAY! The IFI Irish Film Archive is custodian of one of Ireland's most remarkable resources -- our nation's film. The IFI collection spans over one hundred years of stories from everyday life to the great achievements of Ireland's filmmakers on the global stage. Collectively this material tells Ireland's cultural, social and political life over the last century... as well as a record of Irish film culture. Our archive building in Temple Bar has reached capacity. Critically, we cannot accept any more material, meaning that precious collections are in danger of being lost. We crucially need to build a new Preservation Centre and therefore have developed an innovative partnership which allows us to do this on campus at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth. We need your help The IFI Irish Film Archive Preservation and Research Centre at NUIM is ready to go, and was on track for completion in 2011. Because of recent funding cutbacks our planned delivery of the new custom-built Centre has been stalled until we raise funds to meet the shortfall in our budget. So we are asking the film community, our friends and partners to help us collectively fund the shortfall of €300,000 by Spring 2012, thereby enabling us to realise the IFI Irish Film Archive Preservation and Research Centre, save this national treasure, and ensure that future generations can continue to learn from, and enjoy, Ireland's moving image heritage.

Whitney Official Trailer
Special preview with director Kevin MacDonald Q&A at the IFI on July 3rd 2018. Opening July 6th. https://ifi.ie/whitney/ Notes: The extraordinary and tragic life of Whitney Houston is explored with great insight and subtlety by Oscar-winning director Kevin MacDonald (One Day in September, 1999; Touching The Void, 2003) in this richly contextualised portrait that digs deeper than most biopics in an effort to understand the causes that led to the singer’s destructive co-dependent relationships and lifelong substance abuse. With extensive access to family, friends and collaborators, MacDonald’s portrait of the artist is a layered, three dimensional experience, the investigative rigour he brings to bear on the material being underpinned by a deep respect and admiration for his prodigiously talented subject.

Loro Official Trailer
Opening at the IFI on April 19th: https://ifi.ie/loro/ 2008’s Il Divo, a biopic of former Italian prime minister Giulio Andreotti, remains one of Paolo Sorrentino’s most critically and commercially successful films. A decade later, he has returned to politics, this time focusing on the career of Silvio Berlusconi, who perhaps more than any other offers a multitude of possible narratives, many of his own creation, set amid Felliniesque excesses similar to those depicted in The Great Beauty (2013). Released in Italy as two films, this version combines material from both into a single feature. It follows two main threads. In the first, a young, regional businessman who uses escorts to bribe and corrupt local officials seeks access to Rome and Berlusconi, hoping to acquire greater power, while the second sees Berlusconi (Sorrentino regular Toni Servillo, bearing a truly unsettling grin) battling personal and political difficulties.

Playing at the IFI in a new 4K restoration from December 8th 2017. Powell and Pressburger are at their most imaginative - and controversial - in this film, starring David Niven. Squadron Leader Peter Carter is alone in a blazing plane. As he prepares himself for death he confides his innermost secrets to a radio operator. After jumping out of the plane he miraculously survives, meets the woman he spoke to and they fall in love. Although he appears to be unhurt, he has in fact suffered severe concussion which is accompanied by a series of strange hallucinations. During a brain operation, he meets characters from another world, and whilst he undergoes this dangerous operation, his spirit is put on trial. The verdict will decide whether he will live or die. Restoration is from a brand new 4K scan of the original three strip negative.

Rosie 2018 Official Trailer
Opening at the IFI on October 12th 2018. Q&A screening with director Paddy Breathnach https://ifi.ie/film/rosie/ Roddy Doyle’s first original screenplay since When Brendan Met Trudy (2000) puts a human face to Dublin’s homeless issue and the increasing numbers of families affected. Rosie (Sarah Greene), partner John Paul (Moe Dunford), and their four young children have been forced to move from their long-term home due to their landlord’s desire to sell, and are now living out of their car, trying to find even a night’s accommodation while they do their best to maintain the children’s regular routines. As befits the subject, Doyle’s screenplay takes a serious approach, focusing on Rosie’s remarkable stoicism and determination as she struggles to keep her family afloat and find a place to call their own. Director Paddy Breathnach’s social realist style, evocative of filmmakers such as Ken Loach and the Dardenne brothers, offers an invaluable insight into the lives of those in crisis.

Ether Official Trailer
Screening at the IFI on the 8th of December 2018 https://ifi.ie/kinopolis-ether/ Screening as part of the IFI & Kinopolis Polish Film Festival, December 6th to 9th 2018. An auteur of the same generation as directors such as Krzysztof Kieślowski and Jerzy Skolimowski, Krzysztof Zanussi’s films tend to examine questions of morality and individual choice. Set in the early twentieth century, Ether begins with a mannered yet sinister doctor (Jacek Poniedziałek) accidentally murdering a beautiful young patient he had planned to sexually assault after rendering her unconscious with the titular drug. Fleeing the scene, he takes a post as a military medic in a remote outpost where he persuades his commanding officer to allow him to begin experiments with ether that he believes will increase soldiers’ stamina and endurance. Imbued with contemporary relevance, Zanussi’s epistemological examination of empiricism and theology makes for thought-provoking viewing.

Mug Official Trailer
Screening at the IFI on December 8th 2018 https://ifi.ie/kinopolis-mug/ Screening as part of the IFI & Kinopolis Polish Film Festival, December 6th to 9th 2018. With films such as In The Name Of (2013) and Body/Ciało (2015) receiving international acclaim and awards from major film festivals, Małgorzata Szumowska has become one of the most significant contemporary Polish directors. In Mug, Jacek (Mateusz Kościukiewicz) might be expected to be at odds with his small, insular community, given his love of heavy metal, dishevelled appearance, and desire to escape, but is in fact not only accepted, but well-liked. However, following an accident that requires him to undergo Poland’s first face transplant, the attitudes of his neighbours, his girlfriend, and even his family change, making him an outsider in his own home. Szumowska’s approach balances playfulness with more barbed comments on contemporary Polish society in this dark satire.

Telecom Eireann 1985 Ad with Bob Geldof- IFI Player
This MTV inspired advert from 1985 starring Bob Geldof, reminding us that "phone wreckers are idiots". Watch it in full at http://ifiplayer.ie/telecom-eireann-anti-vandalism-advert/ Back in the 1980s long before smart phones were dreamt of and when many houses didn’t have a landline, phone boxes containing payphones were a feature of the rural and urban landscape. In this public information film a youth is in the act of vandalizing a payphone before he is confronted by a gang of teenagers, who urge him to “leave that phone alone”. Singing the vandal into submission to the tune of Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall, the ad ends with Sir Bob Geldof telling us “phone wreckers are idiots”. Made in the mid-1980s, it was shot in the style of an MTV music video designed to appeal to a teenage audience and featuring Geldof who was riding high on a crest of publicity following his work with Live Aid.

Unquiet Graves Trailer
Screening at the IFI on March 13th 2019: https://ifi.ie/unquiet-graves-irish-focus/ The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Seán Murray. Unquiet Graves: The Story of the Glenanne Gang details how members of the RUC and UDR (a British Army regiment) were centrally involved in the murder of over 120 innocent civilians during the recent conflict in Ireland. It reveals how state collusion accommodated the actions of known sectarian murderers in the assassinations of farmers, shopkeepers, publicans and other civilians in a campaign aimed at terrorising the most vulnerable in society. The so-called Glenanne Gang rampaged through Counties Tyrone and Armagh and across the Irish Republic in a campaign that lasted from July 1972 to the end of 1978. This powerful new work, narrated by Stephen Rea, continues Seán Murray’s investigation into the legacy of the Northern Irish conflict though testimony-based documentary.  The work offers an empowering voice to victims and contributes to a new understanding of the complexities of the conflict.

Tracy’s dream was opposed on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it, the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure, and potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity. But Tracy refused to give up: she re-mortgaged her home and bought a second-hand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line. With the support of her remarkable crew she went on to shock the sport and prove that women are the equal of men.
