The Lonely Battle Of Thomas Reid
An immersive documentary by Berlin-based Irish filmmaker Feargal Ward.
The Lonely Battle Of Thomas Reid is a cinematic portrait of one heroic Irish farmer who takes on the State and its corporate clients in a landmark legal battle to hold onto his homestead.
We have our opening night tomorrow in the IFI [Temple Bar, Dublin 2] while also opening in Dun Laoghaire, Rathmines, Galway, Cork.
Tomorrow night’s screening in the IFI has a panel discussion afterwards with myself, Clare Daly TD; and film director Tadhg O’Sullivan with Colin Murphy, playwright and journalist, as moderator.
A pair of tickets to the Sunday screening with Lenny Abrahamson speaking afterwards at Rathmines Omniplex at 630pm to the reader who can name the most heroic farmer in cinema history, and why?
UPDATE: ‘Reprobutina has won the tickets for suggesting William Wallace. Thanks all.
