Chance to view Home

22nd March 2007

IFTN mentions there’s a free showing of the award-winning Irish documentary, Home, which was written by Alan Cooke. It will air in the IFI in Dubiin on Saturday the 24th of March at 11:30 am, but tickets must be requested in advance via email.

Cooke, a stage and film actor, shot the film on location in New York during 2005. Co-produced and directed by Dawn Scibilia, the film features Dubliner Cooke exploring themes of nostalgia and the concept of home.

Included are a number of interviews with immigrants and native New Yorkers including Woody Allen, Liam Neeson, Frank and Malachy McCourt, Alfred Molina, Mike Myers, Rosie Perez, Colin Quinn and Susan Sarandon. Irish director Jim Sheridan commented that the film “beautifully captures the Irish immigrants journey through the myth and mystery of New York.”
