Hidden Ireland: A first celebration of Ireland in documentary film

Hidden Ireland is a major programme of documentary film at NYPL, which offers insights into contemporary Irish life and into the past that has shaped it. It will include a range of sometimes conflicting perspectives from indigenous and foreign filmmakers, both amateur and professional. The films, which are drawn primarily from the IFI Irish Film Archive collections, will be introduced by US and Irish speakers and will be presented free-of-charge twice weekly at NYPL for the Performing Arts Lincoln Center auditorium.
