World cinema screenings

A JAPANESE film and a Turkish film will both be screened by the Galway Film Society over the coming week.

Like Father Like Son, the Japanese film that won Jury Prize at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, will be shown in the Town Hall Theatre this Sunday at 8pm.

Two couples, sending their children to start elementary school, discover the children were switched shortly after birth. Now both sets of parents must face up to an impossible moral quandary: hold on to the boys they have nurtured or switch the children and restart family life?

Amnesty International Galway and the Galway Film Society will mark International Women’s Day by screening Turkish film Night of Silence on Thursday March 6 at 8pm in IT250, NUI Galway. This drama deals with the subject of arranged marriages.

Tickets for both films are available from the Town Hall on 091 - 569777 or
