‘(An) Other Irish Cinema’ is the work of three independent filmmakers based in Ireland who have been making films over the past decade with the liberty of experimentation that low-and-no budget production can offer.
Although the films of Donal Foreman, Rouzbeh Rashidi and Maximilian Le Cain are very different, they are linked by the use of exploratory, non-script-based approaches to filmmaking and by a keen awareness of the cinema histories that have explored the medium’s possibilities.
Foreman, Rashidi and Le Cain formed ‘(An) Other Irish Cinema’ as a platform for joint screenings, to showcase their work and, in so doing, to propose the possibility of an/other filmmaking culture in Ireland.
Pull by Donal Foreman will be screened this evening, followed by Bipedality by Rouzbeh Rashidi on Friday 23rd and Maximilian Le Cain’s Everybody’s Favourite Disease on Saturday the 25th July. There will be a discussion with the filmmakers on the 23rd after the screening.
The event is free and takes place at Exchange Dublin, in Templebar with screenings starting at 8pm. Visit www.anotheririshcinema.blogspot.com for more details.
