Fallout Johnny Savage
Fallout
The Riverbank presents ‘Fallout’ a new exhibition of work by photographer, Johnny Savage. Savage spent almost two years photographing and developing this series of photographs, shooting in various towns and cities across Ireland, including in his native North Kildare. The resulting eerie and surreal landscapes present a view of a modern Ireland that is still haunted by its past. These photographs visit the all too familiar empty buildings on the edge of town, modern day ruins that have become part of our everyday landscape. read more

The Imitation Game
Benedict Cumberbatch stars as brilliant Cambridge mathematician, cryptanalyst and pioneering computer scientist Alan Turing, who spearheaded the Enigma code-breaking operation during World War II and was later persecuted by the British government for his homosexuality. Norwegian director Morten Tyldum (Headhunters) skilfully delivers a gripping film, with Turing and his colleagues racing against time to devise a machine that can crack Germany’s Enigma codes, while Turing himself must work out how to be a gay man at a time when such men are routinely crushed by the law. read more

Emer Gillespie:
Picture You, Picture Me
Picture You, Picture Me is a collaborative and explorative portrait project between artist Emer Gillespie and her daughter Laoisha. Born in Galway Ireland in 2002, Laoisha has Downs Syndrome. As a consistent subject in Emer's work, this series has naturally evolved from her curiosity and urge to stand on the other side of the camera, taking more control over the artist as the subject, and of the images taken. read more

Riverbank Cinema Presents:
Diplomacy
Towards the end of World War II, General Dietrick von Choltitz, the governor of Nazi-occupied Paris, receives an order to destroy the city if the Nazis lose it to Allied forces. In this riveting adaptation of the stage play, the great Volker Schlöndorff has created a psychologically elaborate game of political manners between two highly contrasting characters played by two of France’s greatest stage and screen actors André Dussollier and Niels Arestrup. While Choltitz entrenches himself behind his duty to unquestioningly obey all military orders, Nordling tries everything he can to appeal to reason and humanity and prevent the senseless destruction of the beloved ‘City of Light.’ “Diplomacy” is deeply connected with its moment in history, yet resounds with timeliness in its study of ideologies and the necessary search for common ground. read more
