IRISH DOCUMENTARY FILMS

I’m honored to partner with local organizations to bring these important documentary films about labor history, Irish history and culture, and the Northern Ireland peace process to the Northwest Side of Chicago.

We are sponsoring these films as part of the 2017 Irish Books Arts and Music Festival at the Irish-American Heritage Center at 4626 N. Knox in Chicago on October 28th and 29th. Please consider joining us at one of the film screenings below and learn more about subjects which have deeply impacted both Ireland and America.

Please note the compelling film “In the Name of Peace: John Hume in America” is narrated by Liam Neeson and features interviews with President Bill Clinton, President Jimmy Carter, as well as Irish leaders and Bono from U2.

I hope to see you there!
