Irish Film Days in Bucharest

The Romanian Cultural Institute (38, Alexandru Alley) will host next week, on November 10 and 11, the third edition of the Irish Film Days in Romania. The event is organized by the Irish Embassy in Bucharest, in partnership with the Irish Film Institute, Reel Ireland, Culture Ireland and the Romanian Cultural Institute (ICR). The films scheduled for November 10, starting 6.30pm, are the short-reel productions “The Irish Dog Whisperer” (2010, 3 min), directed by Ivan McMahon, “Pentecost” (2011, 11 min), dir. by Peter McDonald, “Shoe” (2010, 13 min), dir. by Nick Kelly, and the feature film “Kisses” (2008, 72 min), directed by Lance Dally. The event will be opened by HE John Morahan, the Irish Ambassador in Bucharest, who qualified it as “an important opportunity to strengthen ties between Ireland and Romania, particularly among young Romanian film-lovers”. The productions scheduled for November 11, starting 6.30pm, include the documentary short “Hearing Silence” (2010, 12 min), directed by Hillary Fennell, the short “The Night Nurse” (2010, 4 min), dir. by Terence White, and the feature film “32A” (2007, 89 min), directed by Marian Quinn. “Hearing Silence” is the moving testimony of the protagonist, Elizabeth Petcu, who lost her hearing. The latter will attend the screening alongside her husband, the Romanian musician Mircea Petcu. The films included in the selection will be presented for the first time in Bucharest. All the productions come with Romanian subtitles. The public’s entrance is free, within the number of seats available, according to the ICR release.
