Ciné Gael Montréal Irish Film Series 1997
As the year started, before our season had properly begun, we were able to bring a substantial portion of our regular audience to a premiere screening of Some Mother's Son starring Helen Mirren and Fionnula Flanagan, with a script by Terry George and Jim Sheridan.
Our season featured films from four of Ireland's important directors: Pat O'Connor, Bob Quinn, Brendan Byrne and Thaddeus O'Sullivan. Brendan Byrne was a guest speaker and presented two of his films to our audience: Puddy Cat, and The Kickhams, part 2 of our program below.
The season finished with Thaddeus Sullivan's powerful film, Nothing Personal, bringing us back to 'the troubles', where we started the season with Some Mother's Son.
