John McGahern: A Private World 1980
Description: On March 30th 2006, after a life-time of dedication to his art, John McGahern, one of Ireland's most distinguished writers, sadly passed away after a long illness. Since the publication of his first ebook in 1963, John McGahern was at the cultural heart of Irish life. He was in the satisfied position of being universally praised by the critics and equally loved by the reading public. John McGahern: A Personal Globe was filmed in 2004 just prior to the publication of his memoirs and these memoirs form the backbone of the documentary. Through intimate interviews, a powerful and compelling sense of the boy emerges, offering a rare insight into the constructive process.

Description: With the War of the Aisne grinding to a halt as trench warfare gradually set in, both the German and Allied commanders realised the dominance of the defensive, established by fast firing artillery and the machinegun, meaning that casualties in frontal attacks on a dug-in opponent were enormously heavy. Consequently, the armies sought to outflank the opposition by heading north in a set of manoeuvres known as the Race to the Sea. During this phase Field Marshal French insisted on redeploying the British Expeditionary Force to the Allied left, nearer the Chanel ports.

Description: Up until Henry Ford created the Model T, the only choice for private transportation was a horse. Then Mr. Ford created his machine that would change the world. But, compared to another vehicles of the time, the T was a piece of junk. The T was a kind writer to the Bentley laptops of the time. Crude, bare, uncomfortable. But, it was cheap, and better than a horse. A cheap vehicle is better than no car, and to prove this point, we take 2 cheap vehicles and one Ford Model T across 819 miles of dusty, rocky, steep, ruthless Utah desert. No amount of rocks, scrapes, crashes, leaked fluids or lost wires will stand in our way. We think.

Naturens Uorden #

Released 11/18/2015

Description: Jacob Nossell (24) is intelligent, but hardly fits the picture of a dream child: he suffers from a paralysis of the brain, a congenital physical handicap. It affects not only his powers of speech, but also causes cramps and stiffness. When he speaks, his words cluster together, and when he walks it is with difficulty. With a normal intelligence in a weakened body Jacob is the embodiment of the trouble ‘what is normality’: he is too much of an invalid to be totally agreed by society and too ordinary for him to be able to agree his own fate.

John McGahern: A Private World Reviews:

This movie shows the writer John McGahern as he goes about his business both in Leitrim and in Tokyo visiting. The sight of this writer, a country gentleman of the old school, in his tweeds on the train in Tokyo with Hello Kitty schoolgirls is priceless.Wonderful gems of wisdom fall from him, about life, writing, and art. He discusses his father and mother, despairing of one and adoring of the other. There's true insight here from the director, bringing up the truth of his life with nothing more than gently being with him. A lovely movie and on a unbelievable subject. The director is to be congratulated on his achievement, real empathy.
