Irish Film with Dr. Emma Bidwell. What Is An Irish Film?
A fascinating, instructive and entertaining course on the history of Irish cinema.
Classes ran from Monday 27th Jan 7-9pm in Working Artist Studios.
These classes focused on the history of Irish film. It covered the earliest America depictions of Ireland, how Kerry almost became a film destination to rival Hollywood, how culture and politics are represented in films, and how stereotypes of the Irish have been
upheld or challenged. This wasn’t a technical course but an opportunity to learn about and explore film in an informal and informative way.
