A film about the triumph of will, a lust for life and the right to live it with dignity.

Another Way Home recounts the extraordinary story of how a mother creates an alternative environment to the psychiatric system.

The family embarks on an emotional journey overcoming prejudice and bigotry to help change many lives damaged by the revolving door of mental health care.

The film challenges current methods of psychiatry and attitudes to mental illness. It looks to the future with inspiring testimonies from those who have been to the edge of human experience and back carrying with them the triumph of will, a lust for life and a right to live it with dignity.

Featuring Irish Broadcaster and Journalist, Vincent Browne, renowned Professor of Psychiatry, Ivor Browne and Dr. Harry Gijbells.

Narrated by Academy Award Winning Actor, Jeremy Irons.

Event 489 • Sunday 2 June 2013, 10.30am • Venue: Richard Booth’s Bookshop Cinema, 44 Lion Street

In the new docu-feature Trashed, a Blenheim Films production, produced and directed by British filmmaker Candida Brady (Madam and the Dying Swan), which was selected to receive a Special Screening at the Cannes Film Festival, Irons sets out to discover the extent and effects of the global waste problem, as he travels around the world to beautiful destinations tainted by pollution. This is a meticulous, brave investigative journey that takes Irons (and us) from scepticism to sorrow and from horror to hope. Brady’s narrative is vividly propelled by an original score created by Academy Award winning composer Vangelis.

His new memoir, The Time by The Sea: Aldeburgh 1956-1958, describes this period. Nicholas Kenyon is Managing Director of the Barbican Centre. He was previously controller of BBC Radio 3 and responsible for the Proms from 1996-2007. Jeremy Irons, one of our major stage and screen actors, from The French Lieutenant’s Woman to last year’s BBC 2’s Hollow Crown, reads poems – principally Auden’s – that inspired Britten’s songs.
