Éire go Brách - St. Patrick's Day

Explore a different side of St. Patrick’s Day with this collection of films. Included are Peter Lennon’s controversial “Rocky Road to Dublin” shot by the legendary cinematographer Raoul Coutard. The documentary captures 1960’s Ireland—on the cusp of enormous social changes but still mired in a regressive, semi-theocratic mentality. Pair it with “Kisses” about two kids in an Irish housing estate who run away to inner-city Dublin, “A Boatload of Irishmen” about the making of Robert Faherty's landmark documentary-fiction hybrid "Man of Aran," and two films starring the beloved Irish actor Gabriel Byrne.
