The Early Films of Thaddeus O’Sullivan – ‘Assembled Memories: Jack B. Yeats 1871 – 1957’
A Focus On The Early Films of Ireland’s Great Director, Thaddeus O’Sullivan
The ICC is delighted to present a season of films by one of Ireland’s foremost film directors and cinematographers, Thaddeus O’Sullivan. A muti-award winning Director, (an Emmy and Bafta Nominee), Thaddeus is currently considered to be one of the leading Directors in the UK.
Thaddeus has been a working filmmaker for five decades. Throughout the 1980s, he was a central figure in the first wave of Irish feature-film-making, as cinematographer on films such as Joe Comerford’s ‘Traveller’, Pat Murphy’s ‘Anne Devlin’ and Cathal Black’s ‘Pigs’ and he was an early lobbyist for the development of an indigenous Irish cinema.
In this short season focussing on O’Sullivan’s early works, the ICC will be screening O’Sullivan’s drama-documentary, ‘On a Paving Stone Mounted’ (Sat July 2nd 7pm): His short film ‘A Pint of Plain’ plus his first drama ‘The Woman Who Married Clark Gable’ (Sun July 3rd 3pm): and his multi award winning feature film ‘December Bride’ (Sun July 3rd 7pm).
Thaddeus O’Sullivan will do Q&A’s after each of the film screenings; he will be interviewed by Gerry Maguire from ‘Irish Film London’.
