Stuck for something to do on Monday night? Never fear, Filum Night is here!
As ever, your host and landlord John will be on hand with free ‘tay n buns’ (that’s tea and cream cakes to the uninitiated!) and his wicked sense of humour.
Next week’s filum is:
MAN OF ARAN (1934)
The film portrays the family’s attempts to survive the Barren landscape and the mountainous fear that surrounds it. It was the cause of some controversy, dealing as it did with the problems of representation and identity. This was a thorny issue for a self-conscious country emerging from centuries of colonial subjugation. The film was presented as a portrayal of contemporary life on the islands but what was actually delivered was a romanticised notion of what life was like in the 19th century almost 100 years before. (73 minutes)
