Yeats boys on the big screen

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - REEL NEWS -

It’s still fes­ti­val a go-go out there. The Tread Softly. event in Sligo, which be­gins on July 29th, seeks to cel­e­brate the con­nec­tions be­tween the Yeats broth­ers – WB and Jack B, if you need to ask – and that pic­turesque part of the world. The film sec­tion com­prises three sep­a­rate pro­grammes, each to be screened at The Model arts cen­tre. Among the pic­tures to be un­spooled we find Sean O’Mordha’s Soul of Ire­land, a doc­u­men­tary on land­scape paint­ing, Bat Eyes, an Aus­tralian short based on WB Yeats’s poem When You Are Old and Grey, and a vin­tage study of the poet by Ge­orge Fleish­mann and JD Sheri­dan. Make your way to sea­sono­ for more de­tails.
