klynn sunday timesThe Sunday Times give Pick of the Day to Sé Merry Doyle’s film ‘Kathleeen Lynn – The Rebel Doctor’ on TG4! This is a wonderful surprise as when the film was first screened on TG4 on Easter Sunday 2011 the reaction was extraordinary. All the reviews questioned how did it come to pass that Kathleen’s remarkable life, both as a Republican and a doctor, who dedicated her life to the poor of Dublin was largely unknown. The film is based on Kathleen’s diaries that start in 1916 when she was arrested after commanding a unit of James Connolly’s Citizen Army who attempted to take over City Hall.

P9030101The Diaries tell a story of how this privileged daughter of a West of Ireland Protestant Bishop became a rebel in 1916 and then spent the rest of her devoted to the first infants hospital in Ireland, Saint Ultans. The part of Kathleen Lynn is played by the great Irish actress Ingrid Craigie. Now you have another chance to view this film on  Wednesday the 15thJuly at 9:30pm.

Simon and Robin Walker 1967All hands on deck in Loopline Film as we put the finishing touches to Sé Merry Doyle’s  feature documentary ‘Talking to My Father’. The subject is the great Irish Architect Robin Walker who was one of the pioneers of Modernism, beginning in the late fifties and bowing out from a glittering career in the late seventies. His son Simon, also an architect takes us on a journey through Robin’s life and celebrates his buildings and his writings. The actor Patrick Bergin reads some extracts from Robin’s writing and our great poet Seamus Heaney reads ‘An Architect’ the poem he wrote in memory of his friend Robin.  An original score is composed by Stano and Cinematographer Patrick Jordan‘s wonderful eye adds to this sumptuous palette of creativity.  Andrea Pitt and Sasha King Produce and Philippe Faujas looks after tyne Soundscape. wesley collegeThe Jameson Dublin International Film Festival will host the World Premier at the Irish Film Institute on the 24th March 2015. The Director Sé Merry Doyle is known for previous feature documentaries like ‘John Ford – Dreaming The Quiet Man’ and ‘Jimmy Murakami – Non Alien’. For more info go to page
