The Kalem Film Company was the first production company to work outside America and they came to Kerry. Becoming known as the O’Kalems, the cast and crew spent several years in and around Beaufort and Killarney resulting in a series of films depicting Irish life and politics of the time. Kerry Film Festival in association with the Irish Film Institute is delighted to present the premiere of new score for 3 of these O’Kalem silent films at the 15th Anniversary Festival.
