From Boyhood to Longitude

14th Jul 2014

We round up our top 5 events happening this week

Boyhood is Richard Linklater’s magnum opus, a 12 year long project which saw him film a young boy as he passes from childhood to adolescence and finally early adulthood. Heralded as making cinema history, it has been getting rave reviews. A must-see in the cinemas, laptops and TV screens won’t do it justice. The IFI 19:30 this week.


IMMA have launched one of the most tenacious programs of summer events on record with Summer Rising. Scraping the cream of the crop together to produce a truly inspiring program that stretches from the return of THISISPOPBABY’s cult night WERK, to Concrete Tiki, a curation of events around the crossection between art and food. Among these is a revival of the much loved pop-up The Hare Cafe, that will be taking place in the IMMA gardens on Saturday. Meals include a limited edition print by Fiona Hallinan?For more info and booking see here.

The IFI Family Day always draws a crowd, young and old, as their excellent programming sees a full weekend take-over by brilliant cinema and animation. There will be a screening of Belgian film Finn, along with Girl See,Girl Do as part of the Bechdel Series, ?a workshop hosted by Irish Times journalist Tara Brady, in which everyone is invited to dress up as their favourite heroine. Naturalist ?anna N? Lamhna will be presenting Wildernuts, an exploration of the natural world through cartoon. Get bookin early here?


Australian theatre company Chamber Made Opera specialise in site-specific pieces with a particular attention to music. In collaboration with Maeve Stone, Associate Editor at Pan Pan, they will be launching Wake, a site-specific piece that will take place in a currently undisclosed location in a Limerick home. Commissioned by Limerick City of Culture, Wake is a response to the ancient ?Curse on Limerick? by St Munchin who grew so furious at the lack of help from locals in building his church that he prayed strangers would prosper in the town whilst locals would remain forever unfortunate and unsuccessful.

Longitude is here this weekend, with a brilliant line up that promises to make for an exceptional weekend in Marlay Park. Here are two of the highlights, HAIM and Disclosure, and go here for tickets and to see the full lineup
