One of our favourite films of 2013 was Claire Dix’ Broken Song. Good news then for those who missed out on this at the cinema with the news today that After Silence host a special screening of the film. Even better the screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Claire Dix and members of the cast. The event takes place at 7.30pm on February 4th, at Twisted Pepper Dublin. Admission is only €5!
GI, Costello and Willa Lee are street poets, hip-hop artists, rappers and song-writers from North Dublin. Through their words they have found a way to diffuse their frustration with the chaos that surrounds them and to inspire others to master forms of self-expression which nurture creativity rather than anger. In the end, the place where they live and their words are one and the same, constantly in flux, full of darkness and light.
This screening is being put on by After Silence, a group that aims to promote Mental Health awareness and discussion, using music to start the conversation. After Silence believes that music plays an important role in all of our lives to help give a voice to topics that can sometimes be difficult to speak about on a talking level. Through this expression people can share their experiences and listen to those of others and can start asking questions, not just about the music, but about these broader issues and learning from each other.
