Secret Histories: Screening Irish History 24 Jan – 7 March

The University of Edinburgh School of History, Classics and Archaeology follows up last year’s Irish History season at the Filmhouse.

Secret Histories explores the dark and troubling aspects of Irish life. From institutional abuse in Magdalene homes to the forced deportation of the revolutionary Jimmy Gralton in 1933, this series reveals Irish history in imaginative, provocative and controversial ways. The series includes John Ford’s 1935 classic The Informer, and the Scottish premiere of A Terrible Beauty, about the 1916 Rising. Each of the four films will be followed by a Q&A with filmmakers, critics and experts.
