CUMAR: A GALWAY RHAPSODY screening followed by Q&A with director Aodh Ó Coileáin, plus post-screening reception
The diverse glories of the city of Galway, Ireland, celebrated in song, performance and image, make this lyrical, bilingual documentary a must for any lover of all things Irish. Set in a lush, green countryside at the edge of the sea, Galway has long attracted Ireland's most adventurous storytellers in every medium and genre. The confluence of cultural riches evokes the mystical and mythical elements that make Galway a legend in its own right, as director Aodh Ó Coileáin (THE LARK'S VIEW) explores the entrancing work of a host of varied artists. Included are musician/composer Máirtín O'Connor, novelist Mike McCormack, poet Rita Ann Higgins, singer/songwriter Roisin Seoighe, visual artist Pádraic Reaney and comedian Tommy Tiernan.
