The third annual Films from the Southern Mediterranean season kicks off in Sligo tomorrow (2nd October) and continues at various venues around the country until 20th October. This touring programme, organised by the good folks at access>CINEMA, is a rare opportunity to experience the often overlooked work of gifted filmmakers and to discover a new perspective on the personal stories hiding behind headlines.
The phenomenal success of the tour in recent years sees the Riverbank Arts Centre in Newbridge and Sligo Film Society at The Model joining previous venues Mermaid Arts Centre in Bray, Triskel Christchurch in Cork and Galway Film Society at The Town Hall in hosting the selection for the first time.
This year’s programme includes The Bag of Flour from Morocco, Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem from Israel and Ladder to Damascus from Syria. The Bag of Flour’s co-writer, Pierre-Olivier Mornas, will be in attendance at the Galway (5th) and Bray (6th) screenings and will participate in a post-show Q&A.
