being-ap_poster

An intimate portrait of legendary horse-racing jockey AP McCoy, who risks life and limb in his determination to place his winning record out of reach of future challengers before he retires. McCoy is a man addicted to winning and in over twenty years as a jockey, he achieved a legendary status, tallying up more than 4,000 wins. In this gripping film from EMMY and BAFTA winning director Anthony Wonke, we gain unprecedented access to both McCoy and the world of horse-racing itself. As he nears the age of forty and surveys the broken bones, shattered records and ceaseless sacrifice that have defined his career, McCoy must confront an uncertain future.

Following the screening there will be a live on-stage Q&A with AP McCoy hosted by Clare Balding.

Panti Bliss: Queen of Ireland in SGC Dungarvan

Playing Wednesday, October 21st – Book Now

Irish Premiere Screening, hosted by Brendan Courtney with special guests. Directed by Conor Horgan (One Hundred Mornings, Deep End Dance, The Beholder) and produced by Blinder Films (The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology, Citadel, One Hundred Mornings), the documentary has been in production for the last four years and will continue right up until the proposed same-sex marriage referendum in 2015.

How To Change The World with Live Satellite Q & A in SGC Dungarvan

Playing Wednesday, September 9th (One Night Only) – Book Now

How to Change the World

In 1971 a brave group of young activists set sail from Vancouver in an old fishing boat. Their mission: to stop Nixon’s atomic bomb tests in Amchitka, a tiny island off the west coast of Alaska. It was from these humble but courageous beginnings that the global organisation that we now know as Greenpeace was born. Chronicling the fascinating untold story behind the modern environmental movement, this gripping new film tells the story of eco-hero Robert Hunter and how he, alongside a group of like-minded and idealistic young friends in the ’70s, would be instrumental in altering the way we now look at the world and our place within it. There will be a live event with an exclusive screening of the film, followed by a satellite Q&A hosted by Mariella Frostrup, on Wednesday 9 September. The panel will feature legendary fashion designer and long-standing Greenpeace supporter Vivienne Westwood, director Jerry Rothwell, Robert Hunter’s daughter Emily Hunter and other special guests to be announced.

Unity in SGC Dungarvan

Playing Wednesday, August 12th (One Night Only)- Book Now

Seven years in the making, UNITY is a new documentary that explores humanity’s hopeful transformation from living by killing into living by loving. It is a unique film about compassion for all beings, or all “expressions of life,” and going beyond all “separation based on form,” and beyond perceiving opposites. Writer/Director Shaun Monson, collaborating with an astounding cast of 100 celebrity narrators (never before gathered in the history of film-making), presents a message of love, tragedy and hope, all set against the backdrop of some of the most compelling 20th and 21st Century footage imaginable.

Presented in chapters, (like its predecessor EARTHLINGS) UNITY takes an in-depth look at what it truly means to be human, to be mortal, and to be incarnate in this world. The film explores our brief existence among the Cosmos (Chapter I), then moves on to the perceptions of our Mind (Chapter II), the nature of our Body (Chapter III), the infinite capacity of our Heart (Chapter IV), and ultimately to the mysterious energy of the Soul (Chapter V). Initially, these chapters will appear unrelated to each other. But as the film progresses it becomes clear that all life is interconnected, and each chapter represents the totality of our mortal experience, which is only measured in decades.

With a cast of 100 voices all speaking as one voice, UNITY is a genuine cinematic experience unlike any other.
