Rattlebag to interview John Boorman at IFC

On Tuesday September 2, Rattlebag, in association with the Irish Film Centre, will hold a public interview with film director, John Boorman.
The event takes place at 8pm in the Irish Film Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin.
Boorman a British film-maker living in Co. Wicklow, has stunned audiences with stylish, imaginative films.
Recent work includes 'The Tailor of Panama' which starred Pearce Brosnan, Geoffry Rush and Jamie Lee Curtis. His latest film 'The 'Country Of My Skull' is currently in postproduction.
But his first major success was the thriller 'Point Blank', a film which was years ahead of its time in combining the classical crime story with surreal elements.
In 1972, Boorman made his best-known film, 'Deliverance'.
His autobiography 'Adventures Of A Suburban Boy' will be published in November.
Myles Dungan will be asking the director what made him want to be a film-maker, where his inspirations come from, and what prompted his autobiography.
Contributions from the audience are welcomed and the interview will be followed by a screening of 'Point Blank'.
