Skin in the Game

Tuesday, May 6 | 7 pm

2012, 74 minutes
Directed by Donald Taylor Black

Irish artists have found fertile ground for creativity in the demise of the Celtic Tiger and the ensuing financial crisis. Skin in the Game examines how artists like musician Christy Moore, poet Rita Ann Higgins, painter Brian Maguire, and other artists look at emigration, ghost estates and the legacy of politicians and bankers and their impact on Irish life in the 21st Century.

Produced and directed by Donald Taylor Black, one of Ireland’s most incisive and compelling documentary makers, and written in part by renowned novelist and screenwriter, Roddy Doyle (The Commitments), the film was nominated for Best Feature Documentary Award at the 2013 Irish Film and Television Awards. It was financed by The Irish Film Board.

Join us after the film for a talk back with director Donald Taylor Black.

For ages 13 and up
