Film description follows"

Nov. 7th: Little Murders (1971) Dir. Alan Arkin
‘Little Murders’ is a black comedy starring Elliott Gould and Marcia Rodd. It is the story of a girl, Patsy (Rodd), who brings home her boyfriend, Alfred (Gould), to meet her severely dysfunctional family amidst a series of random shootings, garbage strikes and electrical outages ravaging the neighbourhood. A great piece of cinema for those who find joy in how pain can make us laugh. read full story / add a comment

Film description follows”

“Documentary look at the 1996-97 effort of the dancers and support staff at a San Francisco peep show, The Lusty Lady, to unionize. Angered by arbitrary and race-based wage policies, customers’ surreptitious video cameras, and no paid sick days or holidays, the dancers get help from the Service Employees International local and enter protracted bargaining with the union-busting law firm that management hires.

We see the women work, sort out their demands, and go through the difficulties of bargaining. The narrator is Julia Query, a dancer and stand-up comedian who is reluctant to tell her mother, a physician who works with prostitutes, that she strips.”

A SON of a war of independence veteran has accused a historian of publishing "untrue and unchecked claims" relating to a disputed IRA ambush in which his father participated 92 years ago.

Edward "Ned" Young was the last known survivor of the Kilmichael ambush, when the IRA killed 17 police auxiliaries on November 28, 1920. His son John Young has described as "palpably untrue" assertions made by Dr Eve Morrison about a phone conversation he had with her last month. Morrison's claims appear to contradict an affidavit Young signed five years ago, in which he denied that his father co-operated with a controversial book about the ambush. read full story / add a comment

Solidarity Books presents...Howard Zinn's 'Marx in Soho' and Wallace Shawn's 'The Fever'

This July/August Solidarity Books will present….Howard Zinn's 'Marx in Soho' and Wallace Shawn's 'The Fever'. The last time actor and activist Jerry Levy graced these shores he had sell out shows across the country. He returns to perform Howard Zinn's "Marx in Soho" as well as Wallace Shawn's "The Fever". 

Together these plays illustrate the humanity, care and frailty that lie at the heart of struggles in solidarity for justice and equality. His one person performance are simply brilliant as Jerry brings to life the nuances and contradictions in both Zinn and Shawn complimentary pieces.

Come see them yourself and you'll be talking for ages. And often the case Jerry himself is happy to rejoin the audience to break the barriers between performers and consumers.  read full story / add a comment

The Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) is proud to invite you to a public talk by Haneen Zoabi MK, a Palestinian member of the Israeli Parliament on Friday 10th August in the Metropole Hotel, McCurtain Street, Cork City at 8pm.

This is a rare opportunity to find out directly from a public representative in the Israeli parliament how the self proclaimed “only democracy in the Middle East” truly functions. It promises to be an informative and eye-opening experience, and will afford those in attendance the opportunity to learn about issues relating to both the Israeli occupation of Palestine and the continuing erosion of democratic freedoms inside Israel, including the crackdown on the work of domestic and international NGOs. read full story / add a comment
