November 2015 Exclusive Galway screening of Deargdhúil: Anatomy of Passion, the Poems of Máire Mhac an tSaoi
Exclusive Galway screening of Deargdhúil: Anatomy of Passion, the Poems of Máire Mhac an tSaoi
The Centre for Irish Studies at NUI Galway will host an exclusive screening of a new documentary on the life and work of poet Máire Mhac an tSaoi by award-winning filmmaker Paula Kehoe in the Institute for Lifecourse and Society at NUI Galway on Wednesday, 2 December 2015.
Deargdhúil: Anatomy of Passion explores the sensual imagination of a revolutionary poet and includes poems in which the conflicted legacy of political violence for the families of those involved is dramatised and interrogated. The poet’s father Seán MacEntee was in the GPO throughout the Rising and her mother Margaret Browne assisted Michael Collins’s assassination squad during the war of independence.
The film premiered at the Cork Film Festival this month (13, November 2015), where it was shortlisted for the Audience Prize, and features the exquisite movement poetry of New York performance artist Maureen Fleming, the voice of Olwen Fouéré, and music by Colm Mac an Iomaire.
The screening is the first of a number of public events, including a series of lectures that will take place in Galway City Library early next year. ‘Lectures in the Library/Léachtaí sa Leabharlann’ will explore the lives of individuals who were involved in the Irish revolution, including anarchist Captain Jack White, Peadar Kearney who wrote the ‘Soldier’s Song’ and Liam Gógan who coined the term ‘poblacht’, the first word in the proclamation of the Irish republic. The Centre’s programme of commemorative events will raise questions as to the contemporary relevance of the transformative ideas that led to the formation of the Irish state.
The Galway screening of Deargdhúil: Anatomy of Passion will be followed by a questions and answers session with director Paula Kehoe who received the Radharc Award for best Irish documentary in 2014.
The screening will take place in the main theatre at the Institute for Lifecourse and Society at NUI Galway on Newcastle Road beginning at 7.30pm on Wednesday, 2 December 2015. Admission is free and everyone is welcome to attend.
