Route Irish — film screening Wednesday November 7th

‘Route Irish’, a feature length verité/essay film on the campaign(s) against Irish facilitation of the US/UK Invasion of Iraq will be screened for the first time publicly on Wedensday 7th November in Seomra Spraoi.

The event will begin at 8pm.

Ciaron O’Reilly of the Pitstop Ploghshares will launch the film.

All are invited.

Pay what you can afford to the Seomra Spraoi project.

The screening will be followed by a discussion. The editor of the film, which was shot over a period of four years by a loose network of Irish video activists, will be there to shout at when it’s over should you so choose.

Warning. This is not a happy clappy celebration film. It is a subjective essay on the events around Shannon Airport between 2002 and 2006.

After this initial screening the film will be distributed hopefully with the help of some of the audience through torrent networks and also through (the evil but efficient) google video.

A ‘raw materials’ package will be made available at cost for the use of any individuals or groups who wish to use the archive on which it relies to tell a different / their own version of the story. For details — attend the screening or contact the editor at

Thanks in advance to seomra spraoi and revolt video for facilitating this screening.
