Gender ARC and Global Women’s Studies at NUI Galway are pleased to invite you to the following research seminar: Irish Women Screenwriters cast in the shadows - Knocknagow (1918) and Guests of the Nation (1935) Dr Díóg O’Connell, Film & Media Studies at the Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology Date: Wednesday 11 May 2016 Time: 4.00-5.00 pm Venue: The Hardiman Research Building, R1001 With Introduction by Dr Miriam Haughton, Lecturer in Drama, Theatre and Performance at NUI Galway Abstract: This paper explores how Irish women screenwriters are often written out of the historical record, and cast in the shadows of male directors and novelists. In the case of Knocknagow (Ireland 1918) and Guests of the Nation (Ireland 1935), two significant films in the early history of Irish cinema, very little is known about the screenwriters - Mrs. NF Patton (Knocknagow) and Mary Manning (Guests of the Nation). These films could be considered landmark films in early Irish cinema history at the level of narrative theme, historical significance and audience appeal. Both films were written by women but very little historical references are found for either writer. Examining the archive material of both these films, this study traces through the reviews of these films, the place awarded to the screenwriter in the documented history. Is this just a case of the screenwriter being cast to the periphery or is there further marginalisation happening at the level of gender? Drawing on theories around social capital, this paper explores what the barriers are to recognition and record. Is the status of the male author privileged over that of the screenwriter, or is there a gender bias at work, relegating women screenwriters to the margins, on two levels, as screenwriters and as women? Dr Díóg O’Connell lectures in Film & Media Studies at the Institute of Art, Design & Technology, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin. She is the author of New Irish Storytellers: Narrative Strategies in Film (Intellect, 2010) and Documentary in a Changing State (Cork University press, 2012). She has written extensively on Irish Cinema, Television Drama and Screenwriting. She has also been a member of a Writers’ Team for Irish television drama.

How have the 1916 Rising and other revolutions – from France, to Greece, Romania, Russia and Cuba – being depicted in cinema? What impact did the Rising have on early Irish cinema? What role did women play in the emergence of this cinema? These are some of the questions to be examined as part of a major international conference on 1916, Cinema and Revolution to be held from 25-27 May at NUI Galway. The conference is part of NUI Galway’s programme of events to commemorate the 1916 Rising and will he hosted by NUI Galway’s Huston School of Film and Digital Media. 1916 marked the establishment of Ireland’s first indigenous film company, The Film Company of Ireland, whose co-founder James Mark Sullivan was arrested after the Rising and charged with complicity. Events in that year and subsequently have featured in a range of cinematic and televisual productions while there is also a significant international dimension to the relationship between revolutionary history and cinema. This conference will consider aspects of the representation of the Rising, as well as other revolutionary moments in Irish and world history. Plenary speakers will include leading experts on revolutionary and Irish cinema including: acclaimed filmmaker and academic Professor Michael Chanan, University of Roehampton; seminal film scholar Professor Charles Barr, Emeritus Professor, University of East Anglia; leading authority on early Irish cinema Dr Denis Condon, Maynooth University; and prominent contributors to Irish film, theatre studies, and visual culture such as Dr Díóg O Connell, Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology; Professor Adrian Frazier, Emeritus Professor, NUI Galway; and Dr Catherine Morris, University of Liverpool. In addition to the presentations, the conference will also feature screenings of relevant films from the revolutionary period in Ireland, including John Ford's adaptation of O’Casey’s classic play, The Plough and the Stars, as well as a special screening of the documentary 1916: The Irish Rebellion, which will be followed by an interview with the film’s writer and producer, Professor Bríona Nic Dhiarmada. The conference will also include a screening of the major production of the Film Company of Ireland, Knocknagow (1918) which will be accompanied by a specially arranged accompaniment by Irish pianist Morgan Cooke. The conference will close with a screening of Michael Chanan’s The American Who Electrified Russia (2009), a film concerning the extraordinary story of Solomon Trone (1872-1969), the communist revolutionary who became a director for General Electric (first in Russia, then the USA). Conference co-director and Lecturer with NUI Galway’s Huston School for Film and Digital Media, Dr Seán Crosson said: “We are delighted with the response to our call for papers on the topic of 1916, Cinema and Revolution. The 1916 Rising coincided with a vibrant period of film production in Ireland and it is important for us to reflect on this legacy and indeed the impact of the Rising on film subsequently. This is the only conference in Ireland this year dedicated to the topic of 1916 and cinema and it provides a unique opportunity to consider not just depictions of the Rising but also on how this moment connects with depictions of other revolutionary moments internationally, including in the US, France, Russia and Latin America.” A full programme of events during the conference is available online at http://www.conference.ie/Conferences/menu.asp?menu=2080&Conference=463.

Mar chuid de chomóradh 100 bliain Éirí Amach 1916 tionólfar Féile Scannán i nGaeltacht Chonamara. Téama na réabhlóide a bheas ag sní trí na scannáin ar fad a thaispeánfar thar thréimhse trí lá ag deireadh mhí na Bealtaine. Club Scannán Sailearna a bheidh ag reáchtáil na hócáide seo ag a léireofar scannáin faoi 1916 agus oidhreacht an Éirí Amach chomh maith le saothair aitheanta faoi choimhlintí stairiúla a tharla ar fud na cruinne. Cuirfear tús leis an bhféile ar an Aoine, an 27 Bealtaine, in Indreabhán, taobh thiar de bhaile an Spidéil, agus beidh 23 scannán ar fad ar an gclár agus iad le feiceáil i dtrí ionad dhifriúla. Ar na scannáin Éireannacha a bheidh á dtaispeáint beidh Mise Éire (1959), an nuachtscannán staire faoin mbuille ar son na saoirse, an chritic radacach fheimineach Mother Ireland (1988) chomh maith le scéalta nua agus ábhar neamhghnách faoin Éirí Amach ar a n-áirítear Eoin Mac Néill: The Forgotten Man of 1916. Tá an scannán eiseamláireach cogaíochta The Battle of Algiers (1966), a léiríonn an chaismirt fhíochmhar a tharla nuair a d’éiligh na daoine a saoirse agus tá an comhléiriúchán Rúiseach/Cúbach, Soy Cuba (1964), léiriú drámata, físiúil ar éirí amach mhuintir Chúba in aghaidh ollchumhacht Mheiriceá ar chuid de na saothair idirnáisiúnta atá ar chlár na féile. Tréimhse iar-réabhlóide na hÉireann is ábhar do shaothar conspóideach Peter Lennon Rocky Road to Dublin (1968) a fuair locht ar an tsochaí chúng, phlúchta a chruthaigh máistrí an náisiúin nua. Tugadh droim láimhe don scannán seo in Éirinn agus ní go dtí le gairid a cuireadh i láthair an phobail é. Mórán an cheist chéanna atá á plé in dhá shaothar eile: The Square (2013), scannán faoi Earrach na nArabach a thugann go ceartlár na réabhlóide ar Tahrir Square na hÉigipte muid agus Children of the Revolution (2010) a insíonn scéal chlann na mbanréabhlóidithe den eite chlé a chuaigh i muinín an fhoréigin sna 1970í. Tá lón machnaimh sa scannán Persepolis (2007) ina dtugann Marjane Satrapi cuntas grafach dúinn ar a saol sna tréimhsí roimh agus i ndiaidh na réabhlóide san Iaráin. Is spéisiúil an scrúdú a dhéanann Andrzej i Man of Iron (1981) ar an ré iarchogaidh sa bPolainn agus tá cur síos ann ar na coimhlintí ba chionsiocair le héirí amach Ghluaiseacht Solidarity an lucht oibre in aghaidh na gCumannach. Cuirfidh aoichainteoirí na scannáin i láthair agus beidh seisiúin phlé i ndiaidh na dtaispeántas. Tá tuilleadh eolais faoi na scannáin chomh maith le heolas faoi na ticéid ag Clubscannan.ie Teagmhálaí Dan Dwyer 087 8168629 A three day Film Festival on the theme of revolution, will take place in the Conamara Gaeltacht at the end of May as part of the 100 year commemorations to mark the 1916 Easter Rising. This unique festival, hosted by Club Scannán Sailearna, will show films on the theme of 1916 and the legacy of the Rising in Ireland alongside acclaimed films about important revolutionary uprisings around the globe. Starting on Friday, May 27th, a total of 23 films will be screened over the weekend at three locations in Indreabhán, near the village of An Spidéal. The Irish films to be projected include the innovative newsreel history of the Irish struggle for independence Mise Éire (1959), the radical feminist critique Mother Ireland (1988) and many new and lesser known stories of the rising including Eoin Mac Néill: The Forgotten Man of 1916 (2016). Critically acclaimed international films to be shown include the shocking Battle of Algiers (1966) which portrays the violent rising of native against coloniser and the visually stunning Cuban/Russian co-production Soy Cuba (1964) which restages the Cuban peoples uprising against American imperialism. Peter Lennon’s Rocky Road to Dublin (1968) asks what Ireland did with the revolution once it was achieved in a devastating critique of the insular Ireland that had emerged after a half a century of so-called freedom. The film was practically unseen in Ireland until it finally got the attention it deserved a mere ten years ago. Other films to be shown pose similar difficult questions about revolutions and their aftermath including The Square (2013) which gives a real-time account of the events as they unfolded in Tahrir Square, Cairo, during the Arab Spring and Children of the Revolution (2010) which interviews the adult children of violent revolutionaries of the 1970s extreme Left. Other fascinating films on the bill include Persepolis (2007), Marjane Satrapi's graphic portrayal of her life in pre and post-revolutionary Iran and Man of Iron (1981) in which Andrzej Wajda surveys the principal revolts in post-war Polish history which culminated in the rising of the working class Solidarity movement against the Communist state. Guest-speakers will introduce each film and encourage lively debate among audience members.
