As part of Seachtain na Gaeilge, Light House is proud to present a screening of Cumar (2019).
The diverse glories of the city of Galway are celebrated in song, performance and imagery in this lyrical bilingual documentary. Cumar (meaning confluence) stands as a rhapsody to Galway from its artistic community in 2020, the year it became European City of Culture. Filmed in a year’s turning, CUMAR features six Galway based artists and explores their homeplace as a source of impetus for artistic endeavour. In this timely film, you will encounter the distinctive voices of comedian Tommy Tiernan, writer Mike McCormack, poet Rita Ann Higgins, singer Róisín Seoighe, street theatre director Noeline Kavanagh, visual artist Pádraic Reaney and musician Máirtín O’Connor. Supported by the Arts Council and TG4.
The film will be followed by a Q&A with producer Paddy Hayes.
