After a two-year hiatus, Still Voices Film are delighted to announce the return of the Film Society.

A jam-packed programme of Irish and international films kicks off with a screening of the Oscar long-listed Irish-language film Arracht on Friday March 18 at 8 pm in Ballymahon Library.

Arracht tells the story of Colmán Sharkey, a fisherman living in Connemara, who visits his landlord to plead for clemency for his starving community.

After a violent altercation forces him on the run, he fleas, living in an island cave in isolation. Starving, grieving, on the verge of giving up, he meets a sick young girl and a life-saving friendship develops.

The programme also contains a very special screening of the highly acclaimed film The Dance on Thursday March 24 at 8pm in the Backstage Theatre.

The film follows the staging of a new international dance and theatre work (MÁM) by the acclaimed choreographer Michael Keegan-Dolan, from the first day of rehearsal to the opening night performance.

The Dance is a fiercely true and beautiful account of a magical process of work, brought to life by the inimitable Pat Collins (Song of Granite, Silence).
