Beaufort Film Night returns for another screening at The Inn Between Bar, tomorrow night (Friday), at 8.30pm.

Oscar winner, ‘BlacKkKlansman’, which has a certificate of 16, will be the feature film screened. The night’s programme will begin with a screening of ‘Damned Peace’, a short film by a Kerry film-maker.

‘BlacKkKlansman’tells the true story of Ron Stallworth, an African-American police officer from Colorado, who successfully managed to infiltrate the local Ku Klux Klan and almost became the head of the local chapter. Set in the 1970s, ‘BlacKkKlansman’politics are firmly rooted in the present. The film is directed by Spike Lee who also co-wrote the screenplay which subsequently won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay in 2019. Lee is a multi-award-winning director, writer and producer with an extensive filmography that includes ‘Inside Man’and ‘Malcolm X’.

 

The night’s short film, ‘Damned Peace’, is written and directed by Tralee film-maker, Eoghan Hand. The story concerns aceasefire between two rival gangs. Everyone accepts the ceasefire except Denise, an investigative journalist. She believes there’s more to the ceasefire than meets the eye. She finds her story but struggles with a dilemma. Which is more important: Truth or Peace.

“Beaufort Film Night is a non-profit community organisation founded by local film enthusiasts whose aim is to screen cultural English language and international language films, fostering an interest in and appreciation of these category of films, films which normally don’t get a general release screening in Kerry,” Hazel Joy, from Beaufort Film Night, said.

Films screened at Beaufort Film Night will be carefully curated in order to appeal to a general audience. Beaufort Film Night is working in conjunction with Access Cinema, the Arts Council funded organisation which assists film clubs and film nights in Ireland with their screenings.

 

“Beaufort Film Night would like to thank The Inn Between Bar for providing a venue for this cultural and entertainment opportunity.”

Admission to the film is €7 which will go towards covering the motion picture licencing fee and the newly-purchased screen. Further information can be viewed on Beaufort Film Night’s Facebook page: BeaufortFilmNight and Twitter page: @Beaufort_Film.
