Screening of The Quiet Girl | Sunday 23 April, 7pm, Kino Světozor |
A masterclass with the filmmakers will follow in the cinema immediately after the screening. Admission to the masterclass is included in the price of the film ticket. If you wish, it is also possible to arrive only for the master class – in this case, admission is free.
The masterclass will be held in English without translation.
This authentic film from rural Ireland about a girl facing a summer with a foster family became last year's festival circuit sensation. It received an Oscar nomination for Best International Film, two BAFTA nominations, and was also the winner of the national Irish IFTA awards.
Dublin-born Colm Bairéad spent fifteen years making television documentaries and short films before embarking on his debut feature, The Silent Girl. It is an adaptation of the book Foster by Claire Keegan. In addition to awards and nominations, the film resonated in Irish and British cinemas, where it became the highest-grossing film in the Irish language.
Colm Bairéad will discuss this with the film's producer Cleona Ní Chrualaoí, who is also the director's partner.
The talk will be hosted by festival programer Louise H. Johansen from Denmark.
