25/10/2010
De hAoine 29ú Deireadh Fómhair seoltar tionscnamh úr oideachais in Anagaire, Dún na nGall, d’arbh ainm ‘Malairt Phictiúrlainn Phobail’. Thar 6 ócáid áirithe cuirfear scannáin fhaisnéise agus príomhscannáin faoi ábhair éagsúla i láthair agus beidh deis ag an lucht féachana na scannáin a phlé agus labhairt leis na haoichainteoirí a bhéas i láthair.
Leis an chéad imeacht, ar an 29ú Deireadh Fómhair, taispeánfar an scannán ‘Kangamba’, scannán Cúbach a leanann na heachtraí a tharla le linn ‘Cath Cangamba’ in Angóla agus a dhíríonn isteach ar thréimhse 9 lá i 1983 ina raibh trúpa de 90 trodaí idirnáisiúnta Chúbach agus comhraiceoirí ó Fhórsaí Armáilte ar son Saoirse Angóla i gcogadh le fórsaí ciníocha na hAfraice Theas.

I láthair ag an imeacht beidh a Soilse Teresita Trujillo, Ambasadóir Chúba d’Éireann a bheirfeas an phríomh chaint. Beidh ceol agus cuideachta i ndiaidh an taispeántais chomh maith le bia.

Is é an gníomhaí forbartha pobail, Mícheál Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig, eagraí an tionscnaimh agus tá tacaíocht ag an imeacht ó Chlár Peace III an Aontais Eorpaigh, Comhairle Chontae Dhún na nGall agus Bord Forbartha Chontae Dhún na nGall. Deir Mícheál : ‘Taispeánann an tionscnamh seo gur féidir scannánaíocht a úsáid mar uirlis oideachais in ionad é a bheith ina ghléas siamsaíochta amháin mar a fheictear le scannánaíocht príomhshrutha an lae inniu. Is é an aidhm atá againn, 6 imeacht áirithe a chuir ar siúil ina dtaispeántar scannán nó clár faisnéise mar bhealach iad sin atá i láthair a chuir ar an eolas faoi cheisteanna agus scéalta áirithe ar fud an domhain, chomh maith le bheith ag cothú meas agus tuiscint do chultúir eile.
Tá an t-ádh orainn Ambasadóir Chúba d’Éireann, Teresita Trujillo, a bheith mar aoichainteoir againn, rud a chuirfeas le blas idirnáisiúnta an tionscnaimh agus a bheirfeas deis dóibh siúd i láthair a tuairim a fháil faoin scannán agus faoi dhlúthpháirtíocht agus tuiscint idirnáisiúnta. Le ceol beo agus bia i ndiaidh na himeachta agus seans d’achan duine an scannán a phlé ba chóir go mbeadh oíche thaitneamhach agus eolasach ann dúinn uilig.’
Beidh an chéad imeacht de ‘Malairt Phictiúrlainn Phobail’ i Halla Mór Anagaire, ar an Aoine an 29ú Deireadh Fómhair. Tosóidh an scannán ar 7:30in agus tá cead isteach saor in aisce. Tuilleadh eolais ó Mhícheál Cholm ar 0868845476.

Alternative Community Cinema

On Friday 29th October, the launch of a new educational initiative will take place in Annagry, County Donegal. Called 'Alternative Community Cinema', it is planned that over six different occasions film documentaries and feature films will be shown on specific topics and those gathered will be able to remain after the screenings of the films to discuss the topic and listen to speakers deliver a short talk on each issue.

The first of the events on October 29th will see the screening of the film 'Kangamba'. This Cuban made film, which is subtitled in English, follows the events of the Battle of Cangamba which took place in Angola and concentrates on a period of nine days in 1983 which saw a contingent of 90 internationalist Cuban fighters and combatants from the Armed Forces for the Liberation of Angola battle against the forces of racism in Southern Africa.

This first film showing which will take place in the Annagry Community Hall will see the Cuban Ambassador to Ireland, Her Excellency Teresita Trujillo, attend the event and give the main speaking address on the night. The film screening will also be followed by live music and food to be enjoyed by those attending.

Organiser of the project, which is supported by the the European Unions Peace III Programme and managed for the Special EU Programmes Body by Donegal County Council and the Donegal County Development Board, is local community development activist Micheál Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig. Speaking of the Alternative Community Cinema project, Mr Mac Giolla Easbuig said “This initiative is to show the possibility of using cinema as an educational tool, rather than just the sole aim of entertainment that you tend to find with mainstream cinema today. The aim is to hold six different events during which a film or documentary will be shown as a way to educate those who attend and inform them of various stories and issues from around the world, while also helping them to understand and appreciate other cultures.”

“We are lucky enough to have the Cuban Ambassador to Ireland Teresita Trujillo attending and speaking at this event which will lend to the international feel of the project and give those attending a chance to hear her opinion on the film and the idea of international awareness and solidarity. With live music and food after the screening and the chance for everyone to discuss the film it should be an enjoyable and informative night for all attending” he said.

The first of the 'Alternative Community Cinema' screenings will be held in Annagry Community Hall, Annagry on Friday 29th October. The film begins at 7.30pm and admission is free. For more information people are asked to contact Micheál Cholm on 0868845476.
