Alison Glennie presents her film, Point of Departure: a Lament.

This short film documents the inaugural site-specific, inter-generational performance at Reen Farm Sculpture Garden in west Cork, which took place during Skibbereen Arts Festival 2017.

Performers and musicians responded to artworks by internationally acclaimed artist John Kelly and the spirit of this place once ravaged by An Gorta Mór. Members of the cast will introduce the event.

Following the first screening, Alison will facilitate a drama workshop for children, in which the themes of Coming Home: Art and the Great Hunger will be explored.
