'Secret Scripture' to Open Irish Screen America
31 Aug 2017 :
A former resident of Hell's Kitchen, Sheridan is returning to New York and the Irish Screen America festival to present LA and NY premieres of 'The Secret Scripture'.

Adapted from the 2008 award-winning novel by Sebastian Barry, the latest film from director Jim Sheridan will open the 2017 edition of Irish Screen America. Irish Screen America is a bi-coastal film and media festival that showcases some of the best new films from Ireland each year in Los Angeles and New York. The festival will run from Thursday 21st to Sunday 24th of September at the Aero Cinematheque in Los Angeles and Friday 29th September to Sunday 1st of October at NYU's Cantor Film Center in New York.

The Secret Scripture is the hidden memoir of Roseanne McNulty, played by Vanessa Redgrave, confined to a Roscommon mental hospital for fifty years, and revealing the history of her passionate yet tortured life, and of the religious and political upheavals in Ireland during the 1920s and ’30s. As well as the Oscar-winning Redgrave, the film stars Rooney Mara, Eric Bana, Theo James and Jack Reynor. Tom Vaughen Lawlor and Aidan Turner also feature.  The film won IFTA Awards for Best Score (Brian Byrne).

Director of Irish Screen America, Niall McKay said: “It is our pleasure to welcome back Jim Sheridan, the original pioneer of Irish cinema in the U.S., to our festival which strives to showcase all of the talent that exists in the trail which he blazed.”

 

The full line-up for both the Los Angeles and New York legs of the Irish Screen America festival will be unveiled at a launch in Dublin on Monday, September 4th at 5:30pm.

The Secret Scripture premieres on Thursday, September 21st at 7:30pm in The Linwood Dunn Theater, at the Academy’s Pickford Center in Los Angeles and on Friday, September 29th at 7:30pm at the NYU Cantor Film Center in New York. The film will be preceded by an opening night reception and followed by a Q+A with director Jim Sheridan.
