March : School Life (2017)
Redcliffe Library, Thursday 22 March, 1.30pm - 2.30pm
The Award-winning documentary "School
Life" follows a year in the lives of two inspirational teachers in the only
primary-age boarding school in Ireland. For John, rock music is just another
subject alongside Maths, Scripture and Latin, taught in a collaborative and
often hilarious fashion. For Amanda the key to connecting with children is ‘the
book’ and she uses all means to snare the young minds. For nearly half a
century these two have shaped thousands of minds but now the unthinkable looms:
what would retirement mean? What will keep them young if they leave?
From Ireland. Rated M. 01:39 hrs
April: This Ain't No Mouse Music (2013)
Redcliffe Library, Thursday 26 April, 1.30pm - 2.30pm
Chris Strachwitz is a
detective of deep American music that’s the antithesis of corporate “mouse
music” dominating pop culture. Since 1960, his legendary Arhoolie Records has
bought Cajun, Tex-Mex and blues music out of the country and into the living
rooms of Middle America.
Born a German count,
Strachwitz fled his homeland at sixteen, after WWII, to the USA where he
discovered, and shared, a musical landscape that most Americans missed.
American music has never
been the same.
From the United States. Rated M. 01:31 hrs.
Other films (titles to be confirmed) will be shown at Redcliffe Library on the fourth Thursday of each month.
