The latest documentary from Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor is the follow-up to their acclaimed Further Beyond (2016).

With a focus on identity, memory and the thorny issue of nationalism, at its heart The Future Tense centres around the filmmakers’ relationship to Ireland, and their adopted home, England.

Through reflections on personal and social history, The Future Tense explores the osmosis between England and Ireland, at this most critical and politically charged of moments. Including the saddest donkey in Ireland.

Christine and Joe have made many fine movies in their careers, including 2019’s fiction piece, Rose Plays Julie, and Further Beyond, one of the best Irish documentaries of the previous decade.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Joe Lawlor.
