Movie Mondays: "It's not all about drinking and backpipes!"

Hi all!
 This Monday April, 4th, come for a big dollop of beautifully drawn celtic culture and odd paganism on fictional remote islands. Lost you there? Then scroll down to find out about our program... just see it as a proper tribute to folk tales (and good movies...!)

The Secret of Kells
(2009, Tomm Moore, Nora Twomey, France/Belgium/Ireland)

Young Brendan lives in a remote medieval outpost under siege from barbarian raids. But a new life of adventure beckons when a celebrated master illuminator arrives from foreign lands carrying an ancient but unfinished book, brimming with secret wisdom and powers. To help complete the magical book, Brendan has to overcome his deepest fears on a dangerous quest that takes him into the enchanted forest where mythical creatures hide. It is here that he meets the fairy Aisling, a mysterious young wolf-girl, who helps him along the way. But with the barbarians closing in, will Brendan's determination and artistic vision illuminate the darkness and show that enlightenment is the best fortification against evil? (imdb)

The Wicker Man
(1973, Robin Hardy, UK)

Sgt. Howie travels to Summerisle to investigate the disappearance of a young girl. He discovers that the locals are weird and unhelpful, and becomes determined to get to the bottom of the disappearance. (PG 15)

Please note those movies are in English, and will be shown with English subtitles.
