The Stranger

Curtha i láthair ag an Galway Film Centre sa Taibhdhearc:

The Stranger

Beidh an scannán iontach ‘The Stranger’, atá curtha le chéile ag Soilsiú Films agus atá stiúrtha ag Neasa Ní Chianáin, á thaispeáint sa Taibhdhearc ar an 18 Bealtaine ag 11am.

Is scannán suimiúil é faoi ealaíontóir Sasanach, 44 bliain d’aois, a bhásaigh i mbothán cloiche, áit a raibh cónaí air ar oileán Inis Bó Finne, amach ó chósta Dhún na nGall. Ní raibh mórán eolais ar bith ag muintir na háite faoin bhfear seo, a raibh cónaí air san áit le hocht mbliana ar fad. Cén sort duine a bhí sa ‘strainséir’ seo?

Beidh deis ceisteanna a chur ar an stiúrthóir, Neasa Ní Chianáin, tar éis an scannáin.

Galway Film Centre and Soilsiú Films present:

The Stranger

Galway City of Film is delighted to screen The Stranger on Monday May 18th at 11am at An Taidhbhearc.

The Stranger is a riveting and haunting documentary from Soilsiú Films about Neal McGregor, a 44 year old English artist who died in the stone shed where he lived on the small Donegal island of Inisbofin. He left behind only volumes of secret diaries and animal carvings. The Irish-speaking islanders knew little of Neal during the 8 years he lived there. Who was this ‘Stranger’?

The director, Neasa Ní Chianáin, puts together the jigsaw, aware of the many missing pieces, the contradictions, and that fine line between reality and myth. Neasa will take part in a Q & A after the screening.

Ainm: The Stranger
