YU MING IS AINM DOM Dir. Daniel O’Hara | 13min | 2003
Iarrann Yu Ming éalú a dhéanamh ar an saolré atá ag obair sa tSín trí fhoghlaim na Gaeilge agus ag bogadh go hÉirinn sa scéal iontach seo a shásaíonn an easpa Gaeilge a labhraítear in Éirinn. Yu Ming tries to escape the monotony of life working in China by learning Irish (Gaelic) and moving to Ireland in this charming tale that satirises the lack of Irish spoken in Ireland.

Nuair a bhuaileann Murph lá amháin, ag labhairt Gaeilge go foirfe – nach bhféadfadh sé riamh roimhe seo – agus dearmad a dhéanamh ar conas Béarla a labhairt, tá sé ag lorg cabhair. When Murph wakes one day, mysteriously speaking perfect Irish – which he never could before – and having forgotten how to speak English, he looks for help…

Scéal buaite ar bhuachaill a fhaigheann solace in áit gan choinne – matador teilifíse a labhraíonn go díreach ón teilifís go Cian. A winning story of a boy finding solace in an unexpected place – a televised matador who speaks directly from the television to Cian.

8.30PM: MAZE
Dir. Stephen Burke | 92min |15A
Presented in association with Film In Cork.

Inspired by the true events of the infamous 1983 prison breakout of 38 IRA prisoners from HMP Maze, which was to become the biggest prison escape in Europe since World War II. MAZE is directed by Stephen Burke and features Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Barry Ward and Martin McCann. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with cast and crew.

Even if you miss the opportunity to see the film tonight, an exhibition of behind the scenes photographs of the Film MAZE will be on display in the foyer of Concert Hall, City Hall (from 3.30pm to 10 pm). This one off exhibition by Cork based photographer Marcin Lewandowski offers a unique perspective of making of the film “Maze”.

Photographs like these, usually stay hidden for years in filmmakers libraries due to various copyright and contractual agreements but thanks to kindness of Mammoth Films and support from Cork City Council we bring you this small exhibition as a one off event.
