The Early Films of Thaddeus O’Sullivan – ‘December Bride’ (1990); followed by a Q&A.
The ICC is delighted to present a season of films by one of Ireland’s fore-most film directors and cinematographers, Thaddeus O’Sullivan.
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 be doing Q&A’s following each of the film screenings. He will be in conversation with Gerry Maguire, Director of ‘Irish Film London’.
