UCDVO Development Film Series

UCD, Monday 25th February 2019

The seventh UCDVO Development Film Series will take place over five consecutive Monday evenings, starting the 28th January – 25th February. The series includes 5 high quality feature documentary films on subjects relating to development and global justice issues. Each screening is followed by a guest speaker with an opportunity for discussion.

On Her Shoulders – Twenty-three-year-old Nadia Murad's life is a dizzying array of exhausting undertakings – from giving testimony before the UN to visiting refugee camps to soul-bearing media interviews, and one-on-one meetings with top government officials. With deep compassion and a formal precision and elegance that matches Nadia's calm and steely demeanour, filmmaker Alexandria Bombach follows this strong-willed young woman, who survived the 2014 genocide of the Yazidis in Northern Iraq and escaped the hands of ISIS to become a relentless beacon of hope for her people, even when at times she longs to lay aside this monumental burden and simply have an ordinary life.

IFI Family Festival

Irish Film Institute (IFI)

Spread your film wings this summer with our great programme choices. Stop off in Japan for a brand new anime, or touch down in Australia; root for Sune in Sweden, or feisty Ladhaki girl Chuskit in India. However different the setting, many of the films we’ve chosen share a common theme of characters trying to find their own way against family traditions. Biodiversity and conservation play a part too, in our rainforest-set minibeast opening film and Sunday’s closing film. With Irish premieres and big screen escapades, whatever the weather, you can see the world this July at the IFI.
