A Very Special Invite!!

Mayo Positive Mental Health Fair are delighted to present Meetings with Ivor. The film and Q & A with Ivor will round off a full day of events including a FREE seminar and four FREE workshops which will run from 9.30 to 2,30pm in The TF Hotel in Castlebar, Mayo. The film which costs 5 euro starts at 3pm, and will be screened in Mayo Movie World, is an 81-minute documentary on the life and work of ground-breaking psychiatrist Prof. Ivor Browne. Prof. Browne has been a central figure in Irish mental health for many decades. His pioneering and often controversial work on behalf of the many who cannot speak for themselves is well-known. The film will be followed by a Q & A with Ivor himself from 4.30 to 5pm.

Alan Gilsenan's acclaimed new film, produced by Tomás Hardiman, captures the essence of this extraordinary man. In a quirky and challenging cinematic portrait we meet Browne, now in his late-eighties, who is still full of energy, good humour and compassion, and who remains a deeply-informed, startlingly innovative thinker. His unique attributes continue to find vital expression and offer real hope in an increasingly bewildering world. The film contains contributions from a host of familiar faces including Tommy Tiernan, Tom Murphy, Mary Coughlan and Professor Brendan Kelly. Sebastian Barry and Nell McCafferty also feature among contributors. The piper, Ronan Browne, son of Ivor, composed the haunting musical score.

Some recent reviews:

Sunniva O'Flynn, Head of Irish Film Programming at the Irish Film Institute, says: ‘Since the IFI opened I have never seen such demand for a new Irish documentary. We've experienced queues out the door and have had to extend the planned run.'

Chiara Kelly at the Eye Cinema in Galway said: ‘Last night demand exceeded supply and we had to upgrade to our biggest cinema. The Q&A session with the director went down a treat. We are extending the film's run at the Eye also. It's been creating quite a stir here.'
