THE film ‘It’s Not Yet Dark’, by the late Si­mon Fitz­mau­rice will be screened at Mer­maid Arts Cen­tre in Bray on Fri­day, Jan­uary 12, at 8 p.m.

In 2008, Ir­ish direc­tor Si­mon was di­ag­nosed with mo­tor neu­rone dis­ease (ALS).

It’s Not Yet Dark is in­spi­ra­tional, hon­est and par­tic­u­larly poignant fol­low­ing Si­mon’s re­cent death.
