First Fortnight in partnership with IFI National presents Irene’s Ghost
UK 2018 78mins English language Cert: PG
Iain was 3 when his mother Irene died. The family silence around Irene meant that she was alive only in Iain’s imagination. Later in life, the birth of his own child inspires a journey to discover the truth about Irene, piecing together fragments of the past to uncover a long held family secret. Using animation mixed with filmed footage, Irene’s Ghost explores memory and mental health to movingly rebuild a lost life.
There will be a 20-minute post-show discussion for those who wish to participate.
Adm. €7 / €5 (concessions)
