'Deargdhúil/ Anatomy of Passion' at The Glens Film Club

Back by popular demand, Director Paula Kehoe returns to The Glens Centre, for a Q&A following the screening of her latest film Deargdhúil, Anatomy of Passion this Friday 30th at 8.30pm.


The film explores the life, work and sensual poetic imagination of Máire Mhac an tSaoi. She was born in 1922 and helped revolutionise Irish poetry, exploring intimate aspects of female experience in Ireland at a time when women's voices were on the margins of Irish literature and society.


Set against a backdrop of a tumultuous century in Irish history in which she and her family were centrally involved, her story is told from an intimate perspective through dramatic representations of a sequence of poems re-imagined and choreographed as short films, intercut with rare footage and the poet’s own commentary on her life and work.
Admission: €5/€4 bookings on theglenscentre.com or (071) 98 55 833.


Club Scannáin Chluainín returns to The Glens Centre after the summer break. Now in its second year, the film club supported by Foras na Gaeilge, focuses on screening Irish language films with English subtitles/ bilingual films and invites the directors for a bilingual Q&A afterwards.
