Faithful Rising

Ceiliúrann Féile Scannán Mheiriceá Laidineach an ilchríoch an athuair trí scannáin, trí ghearrthóga agus trí scannáin faisnéise. Taispeánfar iad seo i mBaile Átha Cliath agus rachaidh siad ar camchuairt ina dhiaidh sin go Biorra.  Eagraítear an Fhéile i nGaeilge, teanga dúchais na hÉireann. I gcomhthéacs an éitis sin, aithnítear teangacha na mbundúchasach i gCríocha Mheiriceá. Beidh an Cheatsuais faoi chaibidil le linn na féile. Díreoidh féile na bliana seo ar Pheiriú. Zona Intangible a bheidh mar phríomhscannán faisnéise na féile, scannán a insíonn scéal spreagúil atá lonnaithe in Lima. Tá saorchead isteach ar fud na tíre chuig na hócáidí uile a bhaineann leis an bhféile

Ghlac an Fhéile briseadh sa bhliain 2016 mar aitheantas ar chomóradh céad bliain an Éirí Amach. Tar éis bliain a chaitheamh agus ag iniúchadh na ndianiarrachtaí sin, is trua go bhfuil scéal na hÉireann mar atá i láthair na huaire.   Tá céad bliain de dhrochbhainistíocht agus caimléireacht curtha dínn sa tír seo agus fiacha móra leagtha ag Fianna Fáil ar shaoránaigh na tíre in 2008.  Ní féidir na fiacha uafásacha seo, atá go síoraí á n-athstruchtúrú, a aisíoc agus go deimhin is gá diúltú dóibh [www.debtireland.org] [www.attac.ie] Rinneadh comóradh in 2016 ar na tírghráthóirí a ghlac páirt san Éirí Amach.  Rugadh duine díbh sin, Eamonn Bulfin, i mBuenos Aires na hAirgintíne. Tá sé oiriúnach dá réir go mbeadh an Fhéile i mBiorra, mar is ansin a d’fhill sé lena athair William, a bhí mar eagarthóir ar The Southern Star san Airgintín.   Beidh  íomhá/sceitse d’Eamon Bulfin ag ardú bhratach na Poblachta os cionn Ard-Oifig an Phoist ar taispeáint ag gach láthair.

 

The Irish Latin American Film Festival once again celebrates the continent on film, through shorts and documentaries that will screen in Dublin and then tour to Derry, Limerick and Birr. The Festival is organised in Irish, the indigenous language of Ireland and in this ethos acknowledges the indigenous languages of The Americas. In this Festival, Quechua features. Peru is the Country Focus for 2017. Zona Intangible is the anchor documentary that tells an inspiring story in Lima accompanied with shorts from that country.

Admission is free at all screenings at all the different venues.

The Festival went on hiatus in 2016 to mark the centenary of Ireland’s Revolution/Uprising. The year long assessment of Ireland’s strike for freedom sadly has culminated in a sorry state for a sovereign Republic. A century of mismanagement and corruption has led to a debt imposed on the Irish people by Fianna Fáil in 2008. This odious debt, constantly restructured is unpayable and must be repudiated [www.debtireland.org] [www.attac.ie] 2106 was a year to mark the patriots that participated in that Uprising. One of them was born in Buenos Aires, Eamonn Bulfin, so it is important that the Festival takes place in Birr, where he returned to with his father, William, who was editor of The Southern Star in Argentina. A framed image/sketch from Faithful Rising of Eamonn Bulfin raising the flag of the Republic over the GPO will be on display at each venue.
