Aughty Screening, Discussion and Music at Tulca Festival
The experimental feature-length documentary Aughty will be screened on Tuesday, 20 November at 7pm in Nuns Island Theatre, Galway as part of Tulca Festival of Contemporary Art.
Aughty documents eighteen months in the region of Sliabh Aughty, a mountain range spanning East Galway and East Clare. It is a non-narrative documentary interweaving scenes of landscape with scenes of everyday life and customs alongside more experimental sequences. There is a note of foreboding in the way the film treats threats to traditional rural communities, but there are also inspiring moments of community activity and local culture.
The screening is free and all are welcome to attend. The filmmakers, Megs Morley and Tom Flanagan, will be present and will be discussing their work with Gregory McCartney (curator of Tulca 2012) and Maeve Mulrennan (curator of Galway Arts Centre) after the screening. This will be followed by a music performance by Phantom Dog Beneath the Moon in the Róisín Dubh at 9.30pm
Aughty has been curated by Dr Aine Phillips as part of Aughty Public Art Projects, commissioned by Galway County Council, supported by the Arts Council of Ireland and Clare County Council. Aughty Public Art projects is a Ground Up Artists Collective (GUAC) initiative.
