Nature, some might say, is healing. We have a long way to go before the Covid-19 pandemic can be described in the past tense – if ever – but here in Ireland, as time slowly starts to reshape into having the vaguest semblance of meaning, cinemas are set to reopen. Next Monday 7th June is the big date, with some chains taking bookings already, the IFI returning on the 10th, while the Light House Cinema will be back on the 25th.

The housing crisis has ruined and cost far too many lives in Dublin and beyond, and a new short from filmmaker Eamonn Dillon highlights the depths of the difficulty people face under Ireland’s high risk of homelessness. Home Truths features hard-hitting real life interviews with victims of Dublin’s rental system and depicts the stark reality of the housing crisis in Ireland.

One of the most underappreciated sci-fi films of the 21st century, the original Attack the Block was funny, frightening, frenetic and fresh on its release in 2o11. When we covered the film for the Breakout Role Podcast last year, we were struck by how current it still felt, and how immediately bright the star wattage of John Boyega shone. Now Boyega and co are returning to the block, with a sequel to the cult hit confirmed to be in development.
