 Come into The Gardens

Saturday, 15th February 2014

7:00PM @ Light House Cinema

Outlandishtheatre‘s debut film Come into The Gardens, is the outcome of a collaborative arts project, funded by the Arts Council and managed by CREATE. Maud Hendricks, artistic director of the film and neighbour to St. Teresa’s Gardens, became aware of the slow process of de-tenanting of her neighbouring estate. For twelve years Maud only passed by this social housing estate; a walled garden with just one way in and one way out. Maud, Kilian Waters of Shoottokill, and the residents create film portraits in a larger than life way, against the background of the physical skeleton of this housing estate on the brink of demolition.

 

Speaking to Film Ireland, the film’s director Maud Hendricks said, “To make the film I entered into St. Teresa’s Gardens, a social housing estate in Dublin 8, that I have been a close neighbour to for 12 years, for the first time. The screening of Come into The Gardens at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival means that all people of Dublin and beyond can follow me and meet the last remaining residents of The Gardens, before the estate will change its shape for good.”
