The Beck­ett on Screen fes­ti­val con­tin­ues at Cinema West’s Mo­bile Cinema in En­niskillen Cas­tle un­til Au­gust 27th. Fo­cussing on films de­rived from – or merely ref­er­enc­ing – the work of Sa­muel Beck­ett, the jam­boree finds time to screen the tartly ti­tled Film, star­ring Buster Keaton; a ver­sion of Wait­ing for Godot by the San Quentin Play­ers and a se­lec­tion of pro­duc­tions made for the BBC. Less nu­anced sen­si­bil­i­ties are served with two out­ings for (ahem) Don­ald Clarke’s sweary, triv­ial short Pitch ’n’ Putt with Beck­ett ’n’ Joyce. The event is al­lied to Happy Days: The En­niskillen In­ter­na­tional Beck­ett Fes­ti­val. Info on the film strand is avail­able at cin­e­manorth­west.com.
