*******************************************************************************

Film Launch with Shoes introduced by Pamela Hutchinson!

Shoes is a newly restored silent movie from Hollywood's leading & highest paid, female directors, Lois Weber. She has largely been forgotten. But the Dublin Workers Film Festival are on a mission to highlight the work of this early pioneering feminist film director.

Eva Meyer is poor shop girl working at a five-and-dime. She is the sole wage earner for three younger sisters, a mother who struggles to hold everything together, and a father who prefers beer and penny dreadfuls to work. Each week, Eva returns to her cold-water flat and dutifully hands over her meager earnings to her mother. But her wages barely cover the grocer’s bill and cannot provide for decent clothing. With only cardboard to patch the holes in the soles of her shoes, Eva’s life becomes harder with each rainy day and every splinter. In constant pain and with no solution in sight, the disheartened girl considers the uninvited advances of Charlie, a cad with clearly dishonorable intentions.

Join us for a special Q&A with Pamela Hutchinson of Silent London for an intimate discussion around the radical and feminist roots of early Hollywood!

Friday 4.30pm 20th October 2017

On The Art of War (2012) refers to Class War and the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution is a great time to see this master class in strategy and tactics, discussed and reflected upon, so poetically by these class war veterans.

It is a superb film and is rarely screened. We were so lucky to get it. We came across it at the Radical Film Network Conference at the Todpuddle Festival this summer.

These men epitomise political cadre and working class strength.

12pm this Saturday at The New Theatre, Temple Bar.
