THE MAKING OF 'ROCKY ROAD TO DUBLIN'
Director: Paul Duane
2004 / 30 mins / DCP

An unparalleled record of Ireland during its not-so-Swinging Sixties, held back from modernity by the iron fist of an all-powerful Catholic church and a government who kowtow completely to the clergy. A tender and merciless assessment of the country, as only a native could make, shot by the legendary French DP Raoul Coutard. “Magnificent! One of the most beautiful documentaries the cinema has given us.”—Cahiers du Cinéma. Screening with The Making of 'Rocky Road to Dublin.'

Screening in the series Icarus Films at 40.
