ODEON, VICTORIA SQUARE

A Docs Ireland preview screening in association with Féile an Phobail and Springhill Community House for the second Fr. Des Wilson Memorial Event.

A documentary exploring the life of Father Des Wilson, a priest with a socialist outlook, who in following the path of Jesus, felt it necessary to disengage from the Church hierarchy.

In trouble-torn Belfast he embedded himself in a community that needed help, there he lived and worked from1969 onwards.

ODEON, CEARNÓG VICTEOIRIA

Bhí sé ina chónaí agus d’oibrigh sé ansin ó 1969 ar aghaidh. Fear éachtach i dtosca neamhghnácha ba ea é. Stiúrthóir: Vincent Kinnaird / 80 nóiméad / 2021 https://belfastyearround.eventive.org/schedule/60d482d98596ee0063ef7c1c.

Réamhléiriú Docs Ireland i gcomhar le Féile an Phobail agus Teach Pobail Chnoc Chluanaí don dara Imeacht Cuimhneacháin ar an Athair Des Wilson. Scannán faisnéise atá ann a iniúchann saol an Athair Des Wilson, sagart a raibh dearcadh sóisialach aige, a shíl gur ghá dó scor de cliarlathas na hEaglaise le dul ar an bhealach chéanna agus a chuaigh Íosa.

I mBéal Feirste le linn na dtrioblóidí, chuaigh sé i mbun oibre i bpobal a raibh cuidiú de dhíth air.
