Humour is the tonic that can change the way we view our world is one of the overriding messages in the wonderfully warm film Untouchables which was screened at the Set on Monday, the opening night of festival.
Artistic Director, Richard Cook welcomed the audience and remarked how already houses were twice the size of the previous year’s opening night. He also appealed for volunteers to help run the venues over the coming days. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact the box office on 056 7763837.
Untouchables is a rare gem of a film and illuminates the audience with the stark truth that our attitude we choose towards our lives is probably the strongest factor in determining our happiness and well being. The plot is loosely based on a true story and the film is an excellent choice for the festival having garnered huge acclaim in it’s native France.
The festival runs until Sunday and has films to suit all tastes and covering a wide range of genres. Some of the best of world cinema will be screened at a number of venues around the city over the coming days. For more information and to book tickets see www.subtitlefest.com
