It may be hard to believe now, but there was once a time when America was under the thumb of a brash lout with delusions of class, a man who rose to power and prominence despite his blatant criminality. Though there are certainly no modern day comparisons to Al Capone that spring immediately to mind, he remains a fascinating historical figure. As it happens, this summer marks the 30th anniversary of the classic film The Untouchables, Brian De Palma’s strongly-casted story about Eliot Ness and his team of Untouchables’ efforts to bring Capone down during Prohibition. Grindhouse Dublin have chosen to celebrate the film’s anniversary for their screening this month, showing it at the Light House Cinema on July 28th.

Strange Occurrences in a Small Irish Village is the latest documentary from Aoife Kelleher, Director of the award winning One Million Dubliners.

The small village in question is Knock, Co Mayo.  One dark evening in August of 1879 this rural Irish town was host to an apparition of none other than the Virgin Mary herself.  It is said that she appeared outside the local parish church, along with Saint Joseph, Saint John, a host of angels, and the Lamb of God, for a period of up to two hours.  Multiple passers-by would claim to have witnessed the vision.  And so, after a series of inquiries into the occurrence, the site was declared a Marian Shrine by the Catholic Church.

Today, the town is host to over one million pilgrims each year, bringing business, religious validation, and a sense of purpose to the local community.  The documentary provides a window into the mindset of those whose lives it impacts most.Read more…
