Please join the Ventura Film Society for a special screening of “The Wind That Shakes the Barley”.
A Ken Loach film starring Cillian Murphy about two brothers who join the IRA in the Irish War for Independence but take different sides in the subsequent Civil War. A powerful, moving drama that won the Palma d’Or Best Directors award at Cannes Film Festival and said to be “breathtakingly authentic” by Roger Ebert.
Ventura has a strong tradition of celebrating all things Irish around Saint Patrick’s Day so this March the Ventura Film Society will be showing two important Irish films. Ventura Realtor and Irish enthusiast, John McNally, is sponsoring these films and will have flags, medals, and other collectibles and memorabilia from the era on display as well as introduce the films.
