IFI Ireland on Sunday presents Living Colour, a new documentary focusing on K.C.A.T, an extraordinary Irish artist collective – screening on Sunday, 31st July at 12.00
“moments of humour, insight and joy come together to define this uplifting and enlightening piece of cinema and its extraordinary tale of people communicating through art.” Film Ireland
Living Colour is an 83-minute observational documentary film exploring the world of an artists’ collective in Callan, Co. Kilkenny, which focuses on the artists’ abilities instead of their special needs. It is an intimate and often hilarious portrayal of the charming and vibrant characters and, as it takes us farther into their unique world, it throws up questions about the deeply human need to make art.
Living Colour is, in itself, a celebration of what it is to be human. Filmed over a 12 month period in the K.C.A.T studio in Callan, Co. Kilkenny, director Éamon Little gained unique intimate access to the studio and the artists. In this film the audience is taken on a journey into the creative processes of five extraordinary and idiosyncratic artists; Lorna, Karl, Andrew, Declan and Francis, as they create paintings, sculptures and animations in an atmosphere free from ego.
IFI Ireland on Sunday is a monthly programme of screenings which showcases new fiction and documentary works and provides a space for audiences to engage with the filmmakers. Director Éamon Little will participate in a post-screening Q+A with writer/actor Mark O’Halloran.
Tickets are available from the IFI Box Office in person, by phone 01 679 3477, or online at www.ifi.ie
