The Ireland Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce (ILCC) will be attending the 5th annual British & Irish Film Season which takes place from Wednesday 24 September to Tuesday 7 October 2014.
On Wednesday 1 October 2014, the ILCC will be attending the screening of Noble at Utopolis-Kirchberg at 19:00. The follows the theme of Raising Charitable Donations regarding which the ILCC held a popular event in April with Adi Roche. Following the screening of the film and the Q&A with director Stephen Bradley in attendance, we will also attend the post-screening reception where drinks and finger-food will be served and attendees will have the opportunity to meet with the director.
Synopsis: Based on a true story, Christina Noble overcomes the harsh difficulties of her childhood in Ireland to discover her destiny on the streets of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam. Born into poverty, she eventually survives to found a charity to support street children in Vietnam - youngsters with whom she can associate. Shifting between past and present, the film charts both her early life growing up in Dublin as well as later in Vietnam. It focuses on her strength of character as she uses music and humour to pursue an almost impossible dream. She has gone on to help over 700,000 street children the other side of the world. Truly inspirational.

In addition, the British & Irish Film Season will also feature a private screening of An Bronntanas, the Gaelic language film (with EN sub-titles) which has been tipped as Ireland’s entry to the Oscars in the Best Foreign Language Film category. This is being screened on Thursday 25 September at 19:00 at Ciné Utopia in Limpertsberg.
Synopsis: A contemporary thriller set against the background of a local lifeboat crew working off the western Irish coast of Connemara. The crew answers a distress call and locates the fishing boat only to discover a dead woman and a cargo of drugs. They are challenged with a moral dilemma – bring the woman on shore and hand the drugs to the authorities, or leave the body, sell the drugs and save their struggling village. It’s a decision that will change their lives forever.
