Remember that summer? (It's hard to believe we were swimming in Irish waters!) But still there is lovely weather and just cause the temperature has dropped does not mean we don't go outside and watch swimming :-)
Happenings, in association with Waterways Ireland, presents a very special selection of Irish short films, all connected with our love of swimming. This Saturday afternoon from 4.30pm 4 award winning films will be projected from the Happenings barge in Grand Canal Dock.
A perfect free event for all the family, all you and your friends, any hipsters would love this, hippies and their doggies too. So wrap up warm and bring a hot drink, or get one in the local Fresh!
The four films are as follows:
Becoming men - Ross Killeen. During a long hot summer in inner city Dublin, a man looks back on his own youth. Things haven't changed much.
Deep End Dance - Conor Horgan. Mother and son, above and below the surface. A short dance film, written and performed by David Bolger (choreographer and artistic director of CoisCéim Dance Theatre, Dublin) along with his 76-year-old mother, Madge Bolger.
The Swimmer - Fergal McCarthy. The artist swims through the city from south to north, documenting Dublin’s aquatic environment in 2011, a landscape that will radically alter in the years ahead.
Real men don’t wear togs - Jennifer Keegan. A film about the life & times of the hardy old veteran swimmers of the 40 foot in Sandycove.
