Fomhuireáin agus Fearaibh Uaisle / Submarines and Decent Men.

 1.00pm, Dé Sathairn 14 Márta, Phoenix Cinema, an Daingin. / 1.00pm, Saturday 14th March, Phoenix Cinema, Dingle 

Deireadh Fómhair 1939. Cogadh fógartha, tosnaithe. Tá Maidhc Griffin san LDF go bhfuil sé de chúram air ár gcósta a chosaint. Raidhfil agus trí chéad piléar sa tigh aige. Déanach tráthnóna tagann fomhuireán ar barra ag béal Chuan Fionntrá, agus díríonn ar an dtír. Teastaíonn ó bhall eile den LDF an bád a thógaint ar láimh, ach deir Maidhc linn go n-áitítear air nach ciallmhar san. Bailíonn muintir Cheanntrá agus Bhaile Móir soir chun an chuaisín. Tagann bád amach as an bfhomhuireán, agus cuirtear ochtar fear is fiche i dtír. Iad fuar fliuch báite. Gan puinn Béarla acu, ach go ndeireann siad “German good man! German good man!”. Teicheann an fomhuireán an bá siar, agus tugann muintir Bhaile Móir fóirithint ar na créatúirí bochta a caitheadh isteach ar phointe an Dúinín.
Beidh an scéal ar fad á chur i láthair ag Breandán Ó Cíobháin agus ag daoine eile ó Pharóiste Fionntrá agus eile sa scannán thuas a bheidh sa Cinema ag am lóin ar an Satharn 14ú. Beidh gloine fíona le fáil, agus ina dhiaidh sin, plé idir stiúrthóir/léiritheoir an scannáin, Brenda Ní Shúilleabháin ó pharóiste Fionntrá.
Beidh fáilte mhór roimh chách. 

1.00pm, Saturday 14th March, Phoenix Cinema, Dingle 

It is September 1939. War has been declared, and the LDF is in business protecting our shores, its members armed with rifles and 300 rounds of ammunition each. A German submarine is sighted surfacing in Ventry harbour, and one of the LDF desires to take it over, but is persuaded by his colleagues that the attempt may not be wise. Mike Griffin tells the story. The locals gather at the little cove of Cuaisín. The submarine sends out its boat and lands twenty eight men, on the rocks of the point of Dúinín. Barefoot, soaking miserable men, with very little English. Their first words are “German good man! German good man!” The submarine dives and heads back out the bay while the Cleary family uses up the pig that has been killed for the winter to feed the poor miserable Greeks who have been landed unceremoniously near them. And that’s only the beginning. 

The whole story is told by Breandán  Ó Cíobháin, Bernie Goggin and others, in the film above, in the Phoenix Cinema at 1.00pm on Saturday 14th. There will be a glass of wine, and the showing will be followed by a Q&A with Ventry born (and resident) producer/director Brenda Ní Shúilleabháin. 

All are welcome.

The 9th Dingle Film Festival runs from Thursday 12th - Sunday 15th March with a packed programme of features, documentaries and shorts along with some very exciting Q&A sessions with filmmakers giving an insight into the filmmaking process.
