Acclaimed, Controversial, Classic Irish Film
Has U.S. Theatrical Premiere
Screening for the first time in the U.S.—in a newly restored version—the landmark film ROCKY ROAD TO DUBLIN is a captivating portrait of Ireland in the Sixties. In 1967, inspired by the French ‘New Wave,’ the Paris-based, Dublin-born journalist Peter Lennon decided to make a film about his native land. Featuring the photography of legendary cinematographer Raoul Coutard it was the last film screened at the 1968 Cannes Film Festival before the festival was stopped in solidarity with the then-erupting May ‘68.
