Irish-American Film Series
Please join us at Bridgewater State College this Fall for the Irish-American Film Series.
Irish-American ethnicity has played an important role in American cinema since the Silent Era. This series brings together films, many of them by Irish-American directors, that foreground or examine this ethnicity. From the 1930s gangster tale to the narrative of return to Ireland, from James Cagney to John Ford and the migratory Irish of today, these films give us a sense of how cinema not only has represented but also has shaped and amplified many of the major themes in the Irish-American experience.
All screenings take place on Wednesdays in the Moakley Center Auditorium (Room 100) and are free and open to the public.
Sponsored by the Irish-American Studies Program.
