even the rain


Director: Iciar Bollain

Starring Luis Toscar, Gael Garcia Bernal, Juan Carlos Aduviri

Gael Carcia Bernal (Amores Perros) stars as film director Sebastian who, along with hard-nosed producer Costa (Luis Toscar), sets out to make a revisionist drama about the Spanish conquest of the Americas.

Filmed in Bolivia, because it's cheap, Sebastian casts a local man, Daniel, as the Taino chieftain who led a rebellion against the Spaniards.  Unbeknownst to the director, Daniel is leading his community's demonstrations against the government's decision to privatise water.  As filming progresses, the two stories cleverly serve to underline the impact of colonialism on the New World and the continuing exploitation of its resources.

Admission €7

Carnegie Players Present

'Blithe Spirit' by Noel Coward

Friday 7th(Gala Opening 7.30pm), Saturday 8th, Friday 14th and Saturday 15th December

blithe spirit

Directed by Brendan Grant

Charles Condomine is a successful novelist. Ruth is his charming, strong-willed wife. In order to conduct research for Charles’ latest book, they invite a medium to their home to perform a séance, expecting that the eccentric psychic, Madame Arcati, will be a humorous shyster. Well, she is humorous – in fact, her boisterous character practically steals the show! However, her ability to connect with the dead is genuine.

After prancing about the room reciting nursery rhymes, Madame Arcati summons a ghost from Charles’ past: Elvira – his first wife. Charles can see her, but no one else can. Elvira is flirtatious and catty. She enjoys insulting Charles’ second wife.

At first Ruth thinks her husband has gone insane. Then, after watching a vase float across the room (thanks to Elvira), Ruth accepts the strange truth. What follows is a darkly funny competition between two women, one dead, one living. They battle for the possession of their husband. But as the haunting and the hollering continue, Charles begins to wonder if he wants to be with either woman at all.
