Repeat Screening of Black '47

The first major movie about the Great Hunger, Black '47 is a powerful film about the consequences for one family during this terrible time. Noteworthy for its use of Gaelic in the script, and filmed beautifully in Connemara, the movie has an almost classic Western style, and does not shy away from portraying the tragic and awful reality of privation and greed in nineteenth century Ireland. A must-see.
