Bargaintown is set for its Dublin premiere at the IFI Documentary Film Festival. David Jazay’s film is a poetic documentary on life along the Liffey Quays in the late 1980s. Featuring interviews with shopkeepers, antique dealers and local residents, it is a testament to the lives and opinions of a vanished Dublin, years before the celtic tiger changed the very fabric of the inner city.
Highlights include an auction at Tormey brother’s, a night of song and dance at the old Workingmen’s club on Wellington quay, and performances by veteran bluesman Frank Quigley.
The 2015 restoration was supported by the Irish Film Institute and Goethe-Institut Dublin.
Bargaintown screens at 17.00 on Sunday, 27th September 2015 as part of IFI Documentary Festival 2015 (23 – 27 September).
Director David Jazay will be in attendance.
