Official tourism website for Cork, Ireland

The best of Irish and international experimental documentary filmmaking: the Irish premiere of Lynne Sachs’ celebrated feature 'Film About a Father Who' (USA, 2020) and the world premiere of Myrid Carten’s film commission 'Sorrow had a baby' (Ireland, 2021).

Both films deal, in very different ways, with family legacy; incorporating personal archives and pushing against the traditional boundaries of documentary practice. Myrid Carten’s new film ‘Sorrow had a baby’ is produced through aemi’s film commissioning programme, supported by Arts Council of Ireland.

Both artists will be in attendance for a Q&A discussion of their films, following the cinema screening.
