This event is suitable for TY, 5th year and 6th year students. It is a collaboration with the Irish Film Institute.

Director Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) directs this beautiful, heartfelt adaptation of James Baldwin’s timeless novel, a love story about young couple Tish and Fonny. When Fonny is framed by a racist police officer, Tish must battle the justice system to clear her partner’s name. A gorgeously shot film, with each frame an impeccable composition, that evokes textures and tensions of 1970s New York.

After the film screening at the IFI, explore the development of photography as a chronicle of American life in an Interactive tour of the National Gallery of Ireland exhibition Moment in Time: A Legacy of Photographs | Works from the Bank of America Collection.
