To celebrate the release of Kirsten Sheridan’s new film DOLLHOUSE, The Factory and the IFI have collaborated to host a very special KEEPING IT LOCAL day on Wednesday 5 December with directors KIRSTEN AND JIM SHERIDAN in attendance at the Cinemobile, North Wall Quay, Campshire, Dublin 1 (across from Wapping Street junction)
To kickstart the day, we will host a programme of films made in and around Sheriff Street from the 1930s – 1970s from the IFI Irish Film Archive. These special screenings begin at 10.30am and will be introduced by Jim Sheridan who was brought up in Sheriff Street, along with his brother, renowned writer & playwright, Peter Sheridan and will be attended by local active retirement groups, ALONE charity workers and community groups.
There will be a photocall with Kirsten and Jim Sheridan at 11.45am
Following the Archive footage, a preview screening of DOLLHOUSE will take place in the Cinemobile at 1.30pm for local Sheriff Street outreach youth community groups with introduction and q&a by Kirsten Sheridan. 20 lucky locals will also get the chance to go to a special Workshop with Kirsten Sheridan which will explore the themes around the film, which was entirely shot in improv style. Already compared to Larry Clark’s legendary Kids, DOLLHOUSE opens in cinemas on 7 December
