Distant Voices, Still Lives - Nov 5th - Dean Crowe Theatre Athlone - €10 - 8PM

Now that Eileen, Maisie, and Tony are adults, their childhood memories – and in particular those associated with their father – are inconsistent. While Eileen clings to happier times, her siblings remember his brutal violent nature, which has been a major influence on their growth and development. This troubled family must deal with the day-to-day alongside their past.

Terence Davies creates a loving portrait with this partly autobiographical tale (shot in two sections), and it was voted one of the greatest British films by Sight & Sound.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director Terence Davies and film critic John Maguire.

Festival-goers must show their EU COVID Certificate and photo ID if they wish to enter the venue.
