Join us with Leeds Irish Health and Homes at the Montague Burton Resource Centre for the final screening of Older Than Ireland in our Northern England tour, accompanied by a Q&A with the film's director Alex Fegan. In association with Irish Arts Foundation Leeds.
Older Than Ireland features thirty men and women aged 100 years and over. Often funny and at times poignant, the film explores each centenarian's journey, from their birth at the dawn of Irish independence to their life as a centenarian in modern day Ireland. The film's observational style offers a rare insight into the personal lives of these remarkable individuals.
Meet the Director! This free screening will be accompanied by an exclusive chance to meet the director Alex Fegan, who also directed the award winning The Irish Pub.
With the kind support of the Emigrant Support Programme at the Department of Foreign Affairs of Ireland, Leeds Irish Health and Homes, Leeds, the Leeds Irish Arts Foundation and Culture Ireland.
