A Night of Irish Crime will celebrate award winning director David Caffrey and his incredible work.

There will be a Q&A session with him, Caffrey will also introduce two of his films and also talk about Irish Cinema Week at Kino-Teatr from March 16-20, alongside artistic director Olga Mamonova.

David is an acclaimed director and writer who lives in St Leonards and who is known for bringing Love/Hate, Monarch Of The Glen, Grand Theft Parsons, Line Of Duty and Wild At Heart to our TV screens and cinemas.

At 7pm Caffrey will expand on his work and this will be followed by Divorcing Jack. After a break at 9.40pm there will be a screening of the Love/Hate St. Patrick’s Day episode. Please note both of these are certified 18plus.

Divorcing Jack is black comedy adapted from a novel by Colin Bateman and directed by David Caffrey. This is one of David Thewlis’ earliest roles for which he was nominated for Best Performance by a British Actor in an Independent Film.

Love/Hate is the most successful crime drama series in Irish Television history, often compared to The Wire and The Sopranos - uncompromising, appalling and irresistible. Set in modern day Dublin’s underworld, Love/Hate has won numerous awards, including eight Irish Film &Television Awards for Best Drama, Best Director, Best Actor in a Lead Role and others. Love/Hate has attracted controversy for its explicit portrayals of violence and the fact that the actor playing an undercover policeman (Kieran O’Reilly) was revealed to be a real member of the Irish Police Force National Drug Unit. The St Patrick’s Day episode is a backdrop to a fatal clash of revenge and criminal ambitions that spiral out out of control. Nidge (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor), a drug baron, gets mixed up with with IRA men Git and his son Dano with catastrophic consequences.
