Early Silent Films Made in Ireland On Show
The period between the years of 1910 and 1915 saw the production of the first fiction films to be made in Ireland. Now, nine of these films are on show at the Douglas Hyde Gallery in Dublin’s Trinity College. They have turned one of their galleries into a mini movie theatre where the films will be running continuously for people just to pop in and watch maybe one of them.
Professor Kevin Rockett of the School of Drama, Film and Music is the project director and he joins Evelyn in studio
