The Silver Branch

After two hugely successful screenings already this year, the demand to see the award-winning film 'The Silver Branch' continues.  It depicts the life and insights of the inimitable philosopher, poet, and fifth-generation farmer, Patrick McCormack, owner of ‘Fr Ted’s House’ in Kilnaboy in the beautiful, austere Burren.  Through Patrick’s eyes and pastoral verse, this beautifully shot film immerses us in the exquisite textures of the natural world in Clare, bringing us a rare glimpse of a disappearing way of life.  A must-see for anyone who lives in this county.  A must-see for anyone interested in an engagement with our environment and the natural world.

Lucky

glór film season

Dir: John Carroll Lynch  |  2017  |  USA
88 mins  |  Cert: CLUB  |  No Subtitles

This award-winning first feature from actor-turned-director John Carroll Lynch, (Fargo, Zodiac), allows Harry Dean Stanton to shine as 90-year-old Lucky, an atheist seeking the meaning of his life. Stanton's final on-screen performance is funny, touching and beguiling, and all the more poignant in the knowledge that he passed away just days before the film’s US cinema release.
