With support from the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, RTÉ and the Irish Film Board, See You at the Pictures! promises to be an event which will excite the memories and imaginations of the Irish cinema-going public. Director Jeremiah Cullinane has travelled up and down the country interviewing the Irish public about their memories of going to the ‘Pictures.’
These memories have been assembled into a whirlwind tour of pervasive state censorship, church interference, Hollywood glamour and the pure escapism that so many of the older generation remember so vividly.
Ultimately a “people’s history” style project uncovering real lived history of 20th century Ireland as seen through the prism of the cinema.
A truly nationally-shared experience.
