The award-winning Irish documentary The Pipe is to screen at The Model, Sligo, from 8th December. Also a special screening will take place on Saturday 11th December followed by a Q & A with the film’s director, Risteard Ó Domhnaill, producer Rachel Lysaght, and some of the characters portrayed in the documentary.
The Pipe is a documentary about Rossport’s struggle against the economic might of Shell and the divisions that have split a once-peaceful and close-knit community.
Following the success of its sold-out screenings at the BFI London Film Festival last month, The Pipe will be screened at The Model in Sligo on 8¬–11 December.
The Pipe has already picked up the Best Documentary Award at the Galway Film Fleadh 2010, as well as being highly acclaimed by audiences at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year. The film recently attracted a sell-out audience at the Cork Film Festival.
