'The Pipe' to Air on TG4

Risteard O’Domhnall’s acclaimed documentary The Pipe will screen on TG4 this evening at 9:30pm and will be repeated on Saturday 12th February 10:10pm.

The Pipe is a compelling documentary of Rossport’s struggle against the economic might of Shell and the tragic divisions that have split a once-peaceful and close-knit community. The film captures the anxiety, anger and disillusionment of years of conflict as well as their connection to the local environment, and the spirit, humour and heroism that sustains them.

The Pipe received an Honourable Mention from the IDFA Green Screen Jury and was officially selected for the London, Toronto and Palm Springs International film festivals and will screen in the Culinary Program of the Berlinale next week. It has also been nominated for the Cinemas For Peace Awards in Berlin which highlights the human condition and human values.

Produced by Rachel Lysaght for Scannáin Inbhear, The Pipe was financed by BSÉ/IFB and TG4.
