Men at Lunch
Documentary screening and Q & A with director Sean Ó Cúaláin
Date : Thurs 5 Oct, 8pm
Venue : Belltable
Tickets : €10
Director, producer and writer Sean Ó Cúaláin brought one of the world’s most iconic and recognisable photos to life with his documentary ‘Men at Lunch’. Produced by Eamonn Ó Cúaláin in conjunction with Sonta Films and TG4, the documentary looks at the men who made up this moment in time during the construction of the Rockefeller Centre in New York City.
The iconic image had little information about those depicted, with the original photographer unknown for many years. A chance encounter in a pub in Galway eventually named the men in the picture, creating an interest in the story behind the photo. ‘Men at Lunch’ explores in particular the story of individual Irish emigrants, the city they moved to and the role they played in that city’s construction.
Sean Ó Cúaláin’s documentary ‘Men at Lunch’ will be screened at the Belltable on Thursday 5 October followed by an audience Q & A with the Director.
