As part of the Francophonie Film Festival 2019, Alliance Française Dublin presents
“Mom and Other Loonies in the Family” (2015).
It is the story of an odd family during the 20th century. Four generations of “crazies” led by the character of Mum who lived 94 years and moved 27 times in her life. Moving was her only way of confronting troubles, dangers, and conflicts. In reality, it was History that chased her throughout the country and made her go through a terrible century. At the incredible age of 94, Mum tells the story of these events to her daughter, nearly 100 years of often mischievous and heart-warming but also sometimes painful episodes. There will be a pre-screening reception at 5:30pm.
Where: Alliance Française Dublin, 1 Kildare Street, Dublin
When: 6:30pm – pre-screening reception at 5:30pm
How much: Admission free, register here
ENAR Ireland and Ulster University present a Month against racism event:
Brexit, the Border, and Racism – A Conversation between Dr. Ebun Joseph and Luke Butterly, Dr. Chris Gilligan, Dr. Lucy Michael, and chaired by Dr. Ronit Lentin.
