GREEN SCREEN: BUDAWANNY
"Bob Quinn's Budawanny is a proper gem, a real one off and probably my favourite Irish film of the past few decades. It remains a widely unseen film by our most individualistic filmmaker." Aidan Gillen
Budawanny tells the story of a love affair between a priest and a young girl in a small island community off the west coast of Ireland.
This screening will be introduced by Aidan Gillen and Bob Quinn.
Bob Quinn has lived in Conamara - the source of most of his inspiration - for the past 43 years. His films include Poitín, Lament for Art O Leary, Budawanny and many documentaries. He has recently branched into novel writing with ‘Kill Your Darlings', an e-book. His web page is www.conamara.org. Aidan Gillen is an Irish stage and screen actor best known for his roles in Treacle Jr., The Wire and, more recently, Game of Thrones. Aidan can be seen in the UK premiere of The Good Man on Thursday 25 October at QFT.
