Irish Popcorn!, Solas Nua’s free screening series, presents the beautifully crafted documentary His & Hers.
Solas Nua is pleased to announce the return of its Irish Popcorn! series of free film screenings with His & Hers, director Ken Wardrop’s award-winning look at the lives of women in Ireland’s Midlands region.
The film brings together some 70 women as they explore their bonds with the men in their lives, from fathers and sons to boyfriends and husbands. Woven together chronologically from early childhood to old age, these women’s stories create what The Observer described as “an elegant cinematic tone poem.”
The documentary is the recipient of awards ranging from best feature documentary at the Irish Film & Television Awards to Best Irish Feature award at the Galway Film Fleadh. It has also been lauded for its cinematography by the Sundance Film Festival.
