The IFI & French Embassy of Ireland Announce Night of Ideas 2018
18 Jan 2018 : Nathan Griffin
The Irish Film Institute, in association with the Embassy of France in Ireland and Institut Français, has announced the first-ever Irish Night of Ideas event, a screening of Emmanuel Hamon’s ‘The Russian Revolution Through Its Films’, on Thursday, January 25th.

This year’s Night of Ideas, a worldwide initiative spearheaded by Institut Français that celebrates the constant stream of ideas between countries, cultures and generations, will focus on the theme of ‘Power to the Imagination’.

The two decades following the Russian Revolution were marked by a collective of young people who profoundly influenced Russian Cinema. This artistic revolution was led by directors, actors, technicians and poets, and Hamon’s documentary tells the story of this period through films produced between 1917 and 1934. We catch a glimpse of their fight for a new society, where creative freedom was of utmost importance, and of a utopia which would be brought down by an authoritarian power impacting cinema as much as the rest of society.

This Irish premiere will be followed by a panel discussion featuring director Emmanuel Hamon, screenwriter Thomas Cheysson, Dr Ailise Bulfin of UCD, and Donald Clarke of The Irish Times that will explore the use of images and technology as agents of social and political change.

Tickets for this screening are available - here.
