Over the past three years, they have worked with artist Philip Cullen to make three films and one documentary, with the support of WWETB and Garter Lane Arts Centre. ‘A Journey Through the Darkness’ will showcase their latest film ‘The Loneliest Hour’ and ‘A Place to Go’, a documentary by Philip Cullen which explores their individual experiences of living with Acquired Brain Injuries. The free programme of screenings will conclude with a live performance of ‘Now Lie in It’, a new play written and performed by Alan Flynn, with introduction by Joe Hodgkins and followed by a Q&A with Red Lead Productions.
TIME: 6-9pm. Patrons are welcome to join for individual events or for the full programme.
6pm: A Place to Go
‘A Place to Go’ chronicles how, for the past three years, artist and filmmaker Philip Cullen has worked with men in Waterford with Acquired Brain Injuries to make their own films. Each of the men has endured serious illness and injury, yet still have the courage to face these obstacles to make three independent films together. ‘A Place to Go’ is an inspiring and humorous account of seven remarkable men, how they survived and how they’ve come together as film makers and friends.
7.15pm: The Loneliest Hour
The Loneliest Hour is a short film about publicans Jack and Rose whose lives suddenly change after difficult news. It tells the story of family and friends with humour, but there is always a dark character present. The Loneliest hour explores the grief and pain of the ones most touched by the loss and delves into the past- a lost love always hanging on in the sidelines.
7.50pm: Reception: Red Lead Blaas Served.
8.15pm: ‘Now Lie in It’ Live performance.
Written & performed by Alan Flynn with introduction by Joe Hodgkins, followed by Q&A with Red Lead Productions (formerly Belong Film Club)
