Irish Screen America New York: From Gaza to the Boxing Ring

Irish Screen America
, the film fest for Irish storytellers, will have its latest NYC edition running October 25 to the 27th. Held at NYU’s Cantor Film Center (36 E. 8th St), the festival includes shorts, documentaries, and live Q&As with cast and crew.

Films include the documentary Katie, which follows champion boxer Katie Taylor as she attempts to rebuild her career after a year of turmoil threatened to derail it. With many writing her off, Taylor decided to start again, and the notoriously private champion agreed to let a small crew document her attempt to rescale the heights. Gaza, directed by Garry Keane and Andrew McConnell, is a portrait of Palestinian life which offers a rare chance to be immersed in the heart of this misunderstood land to get to know the real people who inhabit it.
