What you may need to know:
1. It’s a new documentary from filmmakers Treasa O’Brien (left) and Mary Jane O’Leary, fusing (and we quote) ‘observational footage, street voxpop, archive material and metaphorical visual essay language mixed with on-the-road verite’. We do love a bit of verite.
2. O’Brien and O’Leary emigrated, then returned, and set about trying to make sense as to why we (and again we quote) ‘have an apathy, or even an antipathy, towards protest’. Have they been to Tallaght recently?
3. The title comes from Swift’s A Modest Proposal.
4. It’s screening at this year’s Jameson Dublin Film Festival. Russell Crowe’s going to be there, too. Not at this screening, although you never know. He’s a live wire, that Rusty Crowe.
5. We say: Not exactly the type of horror film we were hoping for, but possibly essential all the same.
Screening: March 22nd, Screen Cinema Dublin
