In The Shadow of Galway Cathedral — 30 years on

In 1992 The Galway film industry was in its infancy, there was no TG4, Ros na Rún, Town Hall Theatre or Palas Cinema.

There was however an extraordinary and vibrant arts scene. On Tuesday, September 13 a documentary made about the 1992 Arts Festival that year will be shown in the Palas cinema.

The documentary features all the artists and performers from the time and includes among others.. Macnas’ ‘Tain’ Druid’s ‘The Midnight Court’ Punchbag’s ‘Eclipsed’, Spalding Grey, Willie De Ville and a very very youthful Stunning.

The documentary has not been shown for 30 years and will be screened in the Palas Cinema on the September 13 at 8.30 as a fundraiser for the Galway Cartoon Festival.

It is well worth seeing in the context of the development of the city as a location of commercial art and culture and it is packed with familiar faces.
