Featuring:

Brian O’Rourke -folk singer Irish traditional mode
Stephen Murphy – Performance Poet
Broken Cord – Acoustic duo

Free admission and refreshments will be served.
Sponsored by Shannon Heritage and Treaty City Brewery

Brian O’Rourke was born in Ratheniska, Co. Laois, in 1948, he has lived most of his life in Galway city, where he studied languages in UCG and later taught Irish studies in GMIT. Having developed an interest in the Irish song tradition about 1980, he published two collections of Gaelic songs with singable translations (Blas Meala and Pale Rainbow). The books were accompanied by cassette recordings featuring accomplished Sean Nós singers, mostly from Connemara. In 1988 he began to compose his own "jocoserious" songs and produced two albums, When I Grow Up and A Loaf in the Post. Brian has sung in many of the singers' clubs in Ireland and has also sung and lectured extensively in the US. He is the brother of well-known RTE broadcaster Sean O’Rourke.
Brian now lives in East Clare with his wife and three daughters.

Stephen Murphy performance poet. Described by President Michael D. Higgins as 'A precious contribution to our human condition, and joyful too in its possibilities envisaged', Stephen's work is often said to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted. A former All-Ireland slam champion, he has performed his work to crowds in the tens of thousands on several occasions, and received standing ovations in venues ranging from the Abbey Theatre to the Mansion House. Originally from Leitrim, he currently lives and works in Limerick with his young family and their very spoilt dog.

Broken Cord is the newly formed musical collaboration of Stuart Bond & Sarah Croker. This folky duo are no strangers to the stage in their own right and together their blended voices are entwined in delicate spell binding harmony. Limerick man Bond rose to fame locally with his participation in Season 4 of the Voice of Ireland. His musical career spans over 20 years and he has featured in a number of Limerick bands playing drums and guitar and singing. Croker is a native of Tipperary and has toured throughout Europe and the US. She joined a host of nationally renowned artists in Dolan’s Warehouse in July as part of the “I Heart Cranberries” tribute.

Blurb: This wonderful story happened in the age of valiant knights, beautiful princesses, and battling sorcerers. Ruslan, a wandering artist dreaming to become a knight, met beautiful Mila and fell in love with her; he didn’t even suspect that she is the King’s daughter. However, the lovers’ happiness wasn’t meant to last too long. Chоrnomor, the evil sorcerer, appeared in a magic vortex and stole Mila right before Ruslan’s eyes to transform her power of love into his own magic power. Without further ado, Ruslan sets out on a chase after the stolen princess to overcome all obstacles and to prove that real love is stronger than magic.

Title of Event: Syria the Impossible Revolution
Directed by Ronan Tynan
Written by Anne Daly

Tickets: https://filmfreeway.com/TheRichardHarrisInternationalFilmFestival/tickets

Moving and compelling, 'Syria - The Impossible Revolution’ unravels the complexity of how a peaceful uprising against a brutal dictatorship turned into what the United Nations now describes as ‘the greatest human catastrophe of the 21st Century.’

Map: https://goo.gl/maps/LTsu8Bq5YZE2

The first feature length documentary to attempt that challenge in showing the historical roots of the peaceful uprising in 2011 and how and why it quickly turned into a revolution as the Syrian people found themselves consumed by a violent response that is still reverberating. How and why Jihadist groups from ISIS to Al Qaeda sought to steal that democratic revolution and how all of the major powers were drawn into the conflict - all pursuing their own agendas at enormous cost to the Syrian people. More than five hundreds are dead, half the population have fled their homes and six million are refugees outside the country and the suffering of civilians, including women and children, is far from over. Missing from media headlines are the voices and stories of those who peacefully resisted brutal dictatorship and are still struggling for freedom, human rights and democracy against 'fascists in suits and fascists in beards" four of whom - all leading human rights defenders - this documentary is dedicated.

THE BROTHERS WARNER is an intimate portrait and epic saga of the four film pioneers who founded and ran Warner Bros. for over 50 years. This is the inside story of the four brothers who built an empire on a dream and revolutionized Hollywood creating the first major studio with a social conscience--honourable Harry Warner; honest Abe; visionary Sam; and capricious Jack.
This close-knit band of brothers was the first to use motion pictures to “educate, entertain, and enlighten”. Their stories were often ripped from news headlines. It was Harry’s personal belief that, “Those who make a nation’s entertainment have obligations above and beyond their primary commercial objective, which is the box office.”
It’s written, directed and in the voice of Cass Warner Sperling, Harry Warner’s granddaughter, and produced by Warner Sisters Productions. Their epic story includes never before seen photos and footage, and unfolds through the eyes of family members and those who personally knew them, and experienced the Golden Years of Hollywood. Some of those interviewed are: Dennis Hooper, Debbie Reynolds, Angie Dickinson, and Samuel Goldwyn Jr.
Their legendary scrappy rise from nothing, their overcoming of personal tragedies, and their battles are all woven together with the times they lived in. From opening their first storefront theater by hanging a sheet on the wall and borrowing chairs from a funeral parlor to creating one of the top studios in America.

PRECEDED BY SHORT FILM

THE REPLACEMENT directed by Sean Miller

On election night, a janitor feels cheated out of a life he might have lived when his own clone becomes the President. He goes on a bender to seek justice, encountering new forms of prejudice, dismissal, and classism. In a society where the morality around cloning is dividing the masses, physically looking like the newly elected President has its own dangers…

The Replacement is a film about how the best of intentions can get us into places we didn't expect, and how some visions of progress can lead to the abandonment of many. The Replacement reflects this danger with a fanciful world of advanced clones that can out-perform their originals at everything. With their humanity making them the stars of a new social movement, the world quickly accepts all the progress they offer and elevates them to the top of society, with less and less for natural born humans.

Live Script Read – Flames of Freedom
In Association with DeWarrenne Pictures

Story By: John Waller

Screenplay by: Peadar Clancy

While Ireland struggles for her Independence, the Waller Family is faced with its own identity crisis when passions are enflamed as the war draws ever closer to home.

Ireland in 1920 - The Black and Tans have arrived to crush the growing revolution but their heavy handed measures only succeed in polarising the nation further. The Waller Family, wealthy Irish landowners, have their loyalty sorely tested as they see their friends and neighbours brutalised by the Crown. When an encounter with the mysterious captain of the local hurling team occurs, sparks fly and the precarious marriage between Muriel and Otway begins to unravel. Their ten year old son Peter tries to make sense of it all as his friendship with Conn, a young servant who dreams of fighting for a free Ireland, deepens.
Set in rural Ireland, Tipperary, in 1919/1920, Flames of Freedom renders a microcosm of the political landscape in Ireland at the time – After eight hundred years of occupation, some of which had been particularly brutal, and reneging on the promise of “Home Rule” after WW1, many rebels decided to take matters into their own hands for once and for all. The story begins when Martin McCarthy comes to the rescue of young Peter after his father, Otway, unnecessarily puts him at risk by naming him as crew in the race at the annual regatta . Muriel, Peter’s mother, neglected by her philandering husband and already somewhat infatuated with the mysterious Martin, finds herself caught up in a web of emotion after this daring deed. When Peter's resulting injury (a badly broken leg) and convalescence in Rynagh brings him closer to his older friend Con, he becomes fascinated by Con's stories of mythic Irish warriors and their bond grows stronger than ever. Meanwhile, news of the imminent deployment of the RIC Special Reserves (known as Black & Tans) to the area spurs the local IRA cell into action and the struggle for Ireland’s independence comes to their very doorstep. No family comes through times of war unscathed, but what will the consequences be for the House Waller?

Wrestling Ernest Hemingway

Directed by: Randa Haines
Written by: Steve Conrad

Starring: Richard Harris, Robert Duvall, Shirley MacLaine, Sandra Bullock, Piper Laurie

Two lonely, retired septuagenarians, an unkempt, hard-drinking Irish sea captain, and a fussy, well-mannered Cuban barber form an uneasy friendship.

Link to Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0jhpgMXZug

Excerpt from Vanity Fair Review by Emanuel Levy.
… pic belongs to Harris, who turns his role into an overloaded tour de force. Beginning with a nude scene, which he does in an unself-conscious manner, Harris throws himself into every situation with too much gusto and bravura.
Set in a small Florida town, this bittersweet, often lyrical story might well have been titled “The Odd Couple,” for it’s based on the theory that opposites attract.
Duvall, a retired Cuban barber, and Harris, a flamboyant ex-sea captain, accidentally meet in a public park in what turns out to be a fateful encounter that will forever change their lives. The two men are dissimilar, even incongruous, in almost every respect, from their nationalities to their professions, personalities and philosophies of life. But they share two characteristics that can — and do — overcome any other disparities: aging and loneliness.
Join Richard Harris’s granddaughter Ella Harris and son Jamie Harris as we honour the Limerick Legend Richard Harris with this Retrospective Screening.

SPORTS DOC MONDAY - SHOULDER TO SHOULDER
SHOULDER TO SHOULDER EXPLORES RUGBY’S UNIQUE UNIFYING POWER ON THE ISLAND OF IRELAND
Brian O’Driscoll takes viewers on a personal journey across Irish sporting and political history
BT Sport Films series augments breadth of premium sports programming on BT Sport

Fifty years since the start of The Troubles, the film captures the remarkable history of the Irish national rugby union team, which despite violence, opposition and partition on the island of Ireland, has brought together players and fans from two separate countries and united them to compete as one, on and off the rugby pitch.
BT Sport ambassador, and former Ireland and British & Irish Lions captain Brian O’Driscoll, takes viewers on a powerful journey as he explores how Irish rugby manages to navigate and nurture a successful team through the years of violence that have claimed the lives of more than 3,500 people and divided communities.
The island of Ireland has been divided not just on a map but by politics, history and religion. However throughout it all, the Irish Rugby Union has continued to be the governing body of rugby, leading to the remarkable situation of players from two countries competing as one.
Brian’s journey focuses on several key events and subject matters including:
· One of the Darkest Hours: 1972 was one of the bloodiest years of The Troubles and rugby was affected. Visiting international teams were cancelling trips to Dublin in 1972 and the future of the Five Nations Championship was in doubt. One man was determined the violence would not win the day. Willie John McBride – a protestant from the North – took matters into his own hands. He rang his friend David Duckham, the English winger, and implored him to come to Ireland to see the situation for himself, a tactic which paid off. On the day of England’s visit to Dublin the following year (1973) the team received one of the most emotional standing ovations Lansdowne Road has ever experienced.
· Tragedy: On April 1st 1987 three stars of Irish Rugby came within inches of death following an explosion. Nigel Carr, Phillip Rainey and David Irwin were three friends and rugby aces from Ulster. On that day they were making the journey from Belfast to Dublin to join up for a training session ahead of the inaugural Rugby World Cup. As they crossed the border a bomb exploded. They were not the targets but the three players felt its force, emotionally and physically as it would eventually end Nigel Carr’s playing career. Their quiet dignity earned respect north and south of the border.
· Croke Park 2007: In 2007 O’Driscoll led his Ireland team out to face England in a Six Nations game, an historic and incredibly emotional moment. Croke Park is the home of the GAA – the Gaelic Athletic Association. It was also at the centre of one of the most violent days in Irish history, Bloody Sunday, the 21st November 1920. After the IRA killed twelve British Intelligence agents and two civilians that morning, British forces responded by opening fire on the fans gathered in the stands for the All Ireland Gaelic football final. Fourteen civilians, including one of the players, died. Add to this the GAA’s rule 42 banning ‘foreign sports’ from GAA property, and it is hard to believe that even in 2007 the “garrison game” of rugby was allowed to be played. The respect ‘God save the Queen’ was given before kickoff is one of the most stirring moments of the documentary.
Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “Shoulder to Shoulder, with its cross over between sport, politics, religion and society at large, is the kind of film which does not come around very often and will become essential viewing for all sport fans and the wider public. The film manages to shed new light on an instantly recognisable sporting institution known the world over, while placing the unique concept that is the Irish rugby union national team into a fresh perspective. As with all of BT Sport Films output, this film goes beyond individual storylines and personalities, to paint a vibrant picture of Irish sporting history.”
The film features interviews with:
· Willie John McBride – former Ireland and Lions captain
· Rory Best – Current Ireland captain
· Trevor Ringland – Former Ireland Rugby player and architect of Peace international with Hugo MacNeill
· Nigel Carr – Former Ireland player, who speaks about the day a terrorist bomb eventually ended his career
· Donal Lenihan – Former Ireland captain
· Hugo MacNeill - Ireland player who worked with Ringland on the peace international.
· David Irwin - Ireland player who was caught up in the 1987 Killeen bomb, pulling his teammate from the wreckage.
The film is a BT Sport Films commission with TBI Media and 3 Rock Productions. The executive producers are: Sally Brown (BT Sport), BT Sport lead rugby anchor Craig Doyle (3 Rock Productions), and, directed and produced by Isobel Williams and Mark Sharman (TBI Media). It is the latest in the award-winning BT Sport Films series, with the world of football academies, the Bradford City fire and the Crazy Gang of Wimbledon all previously being looked at in-depth to great acclaim:
· No Hunger in Paradise, which outlines the pressures, pitfalls and rewards of making it as a professional footballer
· Golazzo: The Football Italia Story, which captures the essence of a unique period for football fans in the UK and Ireland, a period in which Italian football became hugely popular in the UK following England’s run to the semi-finals at the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy.
· Rocky & Wrighty: From Brockley to the Big Time, an in-depth look at the extraordinarily separate but intertwined stories of Arsenal legends Ian Wright and David Rocastle.
· The Crazy Gang: an in-depth look at the extraordinary story of Wimbledon FC in the 1980s.
· One Day in May: The Story of The Bradford City Fire: the story of how a fire took so quickly that it consumed the main stand at Bradford City in less than four minutes in 1985
· Silver Lining: a study in the dynamics of the sporting relationship between Olympians – and husband and wife - Gemma Gibbons and Euan Burton
Shoulder to Shoulder is the first of several new films (details to be announced soon) that customers can look forward to this season on BT Sport, which already offers an exciting line-up across multiple platforms. Also this season: BT Sport becomes the sole home of the UEFA Champions League, will offer more matches than before from the Emirates FA Cup, continues with exclusive coverage of MotoGP, and, for the rest of 2018 is the home all of the UFC. Rugby fans can also enjoy the best action as BT Sport becomes the home of domestic and European club rugby, while boxing fans can look forward to a top-class line up of fight nights featuring boxers from the Frank Warren stable.
