‘Tapestry of Colours’ film is rescheduled

MOYLE District Council’s Good Relations Programme is delighted to confirm that the much acclaimed feature length film ‘Tapestry of Colours’ will now be shown in Ballyeamon Barn, Cushendall on Tuesday 30th April at 6.30pm.

At the end of March, the first scheduled Glens screening of ‘Tapestry of Colours’ fell victim to the severe weather and had to be cancelled. As originally planned, following the screening of the film, attendees will get the opportunity to have their say and put their questions to the film’s director Zhenia Mahdi-Nau during a ‘Question & Answer’ session. Supported by Ballyeamon Barn, admission is free and a light supper will be provided.

This is the second screening in Moyle of ‘Tapestry of Colours’, a film that looks at perceptions and attitudes about identity and culture, and features very personal and moving interviews with individuals from many diverse backgrounds and cultures.

The film has received some strong reactions from viewers across Northern Ireland, with some describing it as ’wonderfully inspiring and most enjoyable’ commenting that the film ‘reaches into the heart of the audience’, taking the viewer on an ‘emotional rollercoaster’. Following the recent first Moyle viewing of the film in Bushmills, members of the audience remarked that ‘Tapestry of Colours’ is ‘a first class production and so thought provoking’ and that the film made them ‘wish for more inclusive communities in Northern Ireland’.

‘Tapestry of Colours’ will be shown in Ballyeamon Barn, 127 Ballyemon Road, Cushendall on Tuesday 30th April at 6.30pm. Please note that places must be booked in advance and are extremely limited so will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Depending upon the level of uptake it may also be necessary to limit the number of spaces available to groups.

To book your place and receive directions, contact Liz Weir on 07703 440558 / (028) 2175 8699 or email: liz@lizweir.net stating the names of those wishing to attend your group name (if applicable) and full your contact details. All requests must be received no later than 1pm on Monday 29th April.
