The Camino Voyage Film Screening

Camino Voyage stillThursday 16 May at 5.30pm at Pearse Street Library

Join us for a free special screening of The Camino Voyage (2018), with an introduction by the film's director Dónal Ó Céilleachair, to celebrate Dublin Boat Rally 2019.

"It takes some class of determination to row all the way from Ireland to Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain. It takes more to do so in a traditional naomhóg. Yet four men, poet Sheehy, artist Holden, musician Begley, and stonemason Moriarity, set out to do just that in three gruelling yearly stages, beginning in 2014. Hansard joined them later. O'Céilleachair's film records the journey with care and grace. You'll feel uplifted and a little exhausted by the close. " (The Irish Times, 23/11/18)

ldo and Gabriella have been married for almost fifty years, have three children and several grandchildren, and are preparing to live in tranquility this last period of their lives. But something is not right. The young people who were passionate about each other in the 50s, who swore to love and accompany each other until the last day of their lives, feel estranged. Their personalities, their interests and their view of the world are no longer the same. When they turn eighty they begin to wonder: why are we together? La flor de la vida is a fairy tale confronting reality, a universal story about love - and lack of love -, relationships, and the challenges of aging.
