Wed 25th  | Dear Mandela ARN food & film night | Anti-Racism Network Ireland | 7pm – 10pm

“Determined to stop government bulldozers from wrecking their shacks, a new social movement in South Africa is challenging evictions and demolitions on the streets and in the courts. ‘Dear Mandela’ charts the experiences of this movement ‘Abahlali BaseMjondolo’ or ‘people of the shacks’, a movement that sets itself apart from party and NGO politics by demanding not only services but ownership of the development process itself.

The film brings us into the everyday lives of Mazwi, Zama and Mnikelo, three young Abahlali members and ‘lions’ of South Africa’s new generation. The film shows them putting personal aspirations aside to pursue a collective struggle based on dignity and justice. They put their lives on the line as well when backlash brings them face to face with ruthless political repression.” ARN

Directed by Dara Kell and Christopher Nizza (2012)

Thurs 22nd | The Sky Is All Changed | Kathy Tynan’s first solo exhibition | opening 6pm – 8pm

The Sky Is All Changed is Kathy Tynan’s first solo exhibition.
Accompanying text by Rebecca O’Dwyer
Presentations by Coco and Edia Connole and Fintan Neylan on Saturday 24th of May from 6PM
Exhibition runs until Sunday 25th of May

This collection of paintings brings together quiet scenes of local housing, beaches, parks, people and animals. Tynan chooses subjects that are deeply familiar to her. In doing so, she seeks out the strangeness that lies within these encounters. When something is familiar, whether it is a daily route to work or an old photograph on the mantelpiece, it can become taken for granted or even overlooked. In seeking strangeness and astonishment within the most seemingly mundane aspects of daily life, an abundance of texture, colour and depth can be discovered, without having to wait for a spectacular occurrence. Once this process has begun, the unknowability of the world springs forth from every angle. Tynan’s painting style echoes this spirit with sensitivity and dedication. While an appreciation of nature is present in her work, she is determined to avoid grandeur and impressiveness. Her use of paint is considered yet carefree, allowing for an acknowledgment of the sheer novelty of everyday surroundings.

Wed 16th Dealing with Difference: a collective discussion with independent spaces in Dublin | Provisional University talk | 7pm              

[[An event organised by the Provisional University with the participation of Sam Bishop (Granby Park); Barry Semple (Seomra Spraoi); Seoidín O’Sullivan (South Circular Rd. community garden); and Exchange Dublin. 

At a recent event on the creative uses of vacant spaces, the Lord Mayor Oisin Quinn made the point that creativity had a role to play in reducing ‘anti-social behaviour’ in vacant spaces. In reality, however, creative spaces often bring together people who are different, some of whom may be experiencing issues around homelessness, addiction or mental health. In fact, our research into independent spaces in Dublin found that the majority of spaces have had to negotiate issues around challenging behaviour. This is going to become even more of an issue as existing resources to support people in the city are reduced.

This scenario recently came into stark relief when Temple Bar Cultural Trust, which is linked to Dublin City Council, took the decision to terminate the lease of Exchange Dublin citing problems with ‘anti-social behaviour’. This came as a surprise to most people who know Exchange as an all ages, inclusive and alcohol free space. Exchange had also been trying to engage more sensitively with the reality of young and vulnerable people in the area. While this is a complex and difficult task, especially for voluntary run spaces, it offers an alternative to simply identifying and excluding certain people and behaviour as ‘anti-social’ and ‘undesirable’.

This event brings together participants in projects such as Exchange, Granby Park, Seomra Spraoi and the South Circular Rd. community garden, to share experiences and reflections in relation to the negotiation of challenging behaviour in Dublin’s independent spaces.” Provisional University ]]

9th January | SMOLT | Film screening | Director Michael Higgins | 8pm – 10pm

RHODA’s CHAOS in association with RTÉ and Filmbase present SMOLT, a feature film by Michael Higgins in association with Experimental Film Society

Based on a Screenplay by Daniel Bevan
Produced by Ciara Gillan
Directed by Michael Higgins

smolt n. Young salmon migrating to sea for first time.

In the style of a bootleg VHS, SMOLT is a unique portrayal of an eventful few days in the lives of Darren and Leon: two Irish kids who generally have to fend for themselves. While killing time selling second-hand cigarettes, the boys run into some trouble with a girl, a gun, and a shipment of counterfeit football jerseys.

Twisting from cinema vérité to improvisation to pre-scripted lines SMOLT offers an intimate visceral slice-of-life of two kids in their concrete playground that is Dublin City.

26th Sept | SLUM CINEMA | Angst (1983) | 7pm

Plus a Selection of short film by Angst’s ground breaking cinematographer, Zbigniew Rybczynski

“While the slum sin queen is back to her motherland in the Canadian prairies. It’s time to unleash the darkest and the most visually striking slice of cinema we have shown since “The Sadist”.

Before there was Noe, there was Angst. The introverted “I Am Cuba” of the slasher genre.

“Not for the faint of heart, Gerald Kargl’s gorgeously stylized, shockingly violent horror film Angst (“Fear”) remains criminally under-screened – a forgotten classic on the fringes of the slasher cycle and a major influence on both Gaspar Noe and Darren Aronofsky.

Based on real-life Austrian serial murderer Werner Kniesek, Austrian actor Erwin Leder (Das Boot, Underworld, Schindler’s List) plays a maniacal killer recently released from jail. With a progressive electronic soundtrack by Klaus Schulze of Tangerine Dream, the film struggles to keep up with Leder as he stalks through the bland Viennese countryside.

Written and shot by Rybczyński while he was a political exile in Austria, the film conveys a stark nihilism bred from frustration with the absurdities of life behind the Iron Curtain.
The minimal plot works as a platform for innovative cinematic expression—Rybczyński developed intricate systems of ropes and mirrors to track the murderer’s frenzied movement, and anticipated Aronofsky’s Pi with innovative SnorriCam technology; the camera is repeatedly mounted to a freely moving ring surrounding Leder’s body, trapping him in an almost pitiable, self-absorbed world.” – SPECTACLE THEATER.” Slum Cinema

Thurs 19th Sept | Southpaw | ARN food & film night | Anti-Racism Network Ireland | 6.30pm – 11pm

Liam McGrath’s Southpaw offers us the story of Francis Barrett – a story that seems impossible in light of the odds, but true. A young boxer from a Traveller family in Galway, Francis rose up the amateur ranks in an astonishingly short amount of time back in the mid 1990s and went on to qualify for the Atlanta Olympic Games in 1996. He was the first member of the Traveller community to represent Ireland at an international level, and he carried the flag for his team at the opening ceremony. On one level, Southpaw is a sporting fairy tale and Barrett is the hero at its center but the film also follows Barrett (as a Traveller in the public eye) as he deals with the all too familiar kinds of prejudice that surface along side his success. The film captures the monotony of training, the tension before big fights and the camaraderie that the sport inspires but it is equally a portrait of a courageous and eloquent fighter. Barrett, the film’s commentators enthuse, is an all-action boxer who ‘never stops coming forward’.

The event starts at 6.30 and Film screening will begin no later than 8pm. There is no charge for the food and film, just a request that you contribute what you can to our kitty. The night is open to ARN members, friends and anybody else who who wants to join us so please spread the word. Food n’ Film Night is a BYOB event.

12th Sept | Skin Deep | Han Tiernan’s first solo show | Opening 7pm

“Using skin as a metaphor for emotion this exhibition will arrest and assault your senses.
As my first solo exhibition I intend to use a range of skins to evoke, provoke and present emotion. This body of work including photography, sculpture and installation will not be for the faint hearted.”

8th Sept | Withering Zithering | Join musicians Ed Devane and Fionn Wallace as they present short solo and collaborative live sets. Expect interesting timbres, abstract sound shapes, bursts of noise, lulls of calm, and deep drones.

Withering Zithering

Withering Zithering is producer and instrument builder Ed Devane’s side recording / improvising project based around the music of home-made zither instruments played with a variety of extended techniques. Mostly beatless, Withering Zithering music is designed to invoke visual stimulus, and ranges from ambiental to fear-inducing, usually within the space of a live set.

Meditative, somber music, made for late night listening, staring out the window and general elsewhereness. 

https://soundcloud.com/withering-zithering

FYED

A live, improvised electro-acoustic / noisescape collaboration project between Devane and Wallace, on the go since 2008. Using and misusing an array of electronic equipment, acoustic instruments, found sounds and liberal dashes of distortion, the FYED sound is constantly mutating and attention grabbing.

https://soundcloud.com/fyed

Fyodor

Fionn Wallace’s solo and currently turntablism-based project. Using specially cut 7 inch dubplate records featuring sounds made from a variety of sources (musical instruments, voice, field recordings etc.) , modified record players and loopers to build soundscapes and musical moods, Fyodor’s sound is unique.
