They tell him that to save them from extinction he must read the magic spell in the library.

“A beautiful love story that will not fail to move you…” Condé Nast Traveller
Cuba, 1948. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unites them, but their journey – in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero – brings heartache and torment. From Havana to New york, Paris, Hollywood and Las vegas, two passionate individuals battle impossible odds to unite in music and love.
Oscar-winning director Fernando Trueba (Belle Epoque) and Spain’s most famous and successful designer Javier Mariscal create a passionate and animated love story.
Close collaborators and friends for many years, Trueba and Mariscal celebrate their passion for the music and culture of Cuba with an epic story of love and heartbreak, set against the colour and bustle of Havana, New york, Las vegas, Hollywood and Paris in the late 1940s and early ’50s.
Chico & Rita captures a definitive moment in the evolution of jazz music. The film features music by jazz legends Thelonious Monk, Cole Porter, Dizzy Gillespie and Freddy Cole (brother of Nat King Cole).

SUNDAY March 20th – 4.30pm
De Domhnaigh – 20ú Márta
Venue: The Phoenix Cinema
Director: Pat Collins Editor: Tadhg O’Sullivan Camera: Colm Hogan and Feargal Ward Sound: John Brennan

What We Leave in Our Wake is a filmic essay which unfolds as a series of conversations on Ireland, exploring themes such as emigration, mythology, consumerism, socialism, the place of the church in Irish life, the central role of land in Irish history, the sense of a civic society, etc.
Combining images of contemporary Ireland with an evocative blend of archive, What We Leave in Our Wake questions what persists rather than the temporary fluctuations and trends, and talks to some of those uniquely placed to comment on how this country has evolved.

Featuring contributions from Joe Lee, Patrick O’Connor, Leila Doolan, Iain McGilchrist, Peter McVerry, Declan Kiberd, Desmond Fennell and Olivia O’Leary and archive recordings of John McGahern and John Moriarty among others.

DISCUSSION: What role has film in exploring these themes in Ireland today? What do we hope to leave in our Wake as filmmakers today in Ireland?

**** “ An Electric Performance by Aidan Gillen”
Q&A with aidan gillen & jamie thraves

Have you ever wanted to walk away from your life?
One bright sunny morning regular husband and father, Tom Evans, ups and leaves his seemingly happy family life in the Midlands to live on the slightly less comfortable streets of London. Tom appears to be seeking some kind of solace but early on in his journey a violent encounter in a park and a run in with a tree forces Tom to seek medical care.

In A&E Tom meets the harmless, child-like Aidan, the happiest, fast- talking individual you are ever likely to meet, the complete opposite of Tom. Like some stray dog Aidan follows his new ‘friend’, and Tom is too polite or too weak to ask him to leave him alone and his attempts to escape this slightly mad individual fail miserably.
