Deadly Roger Corman Doc It Came from Connemara to Screen at IFI Stranger Than Fiction

I got the chance to check out documentary It Came From Connemara at the Sky Road TV and Film Fest a couple of weeks back and all the fun was had.

It's a spry, wry and utterly enjoyable look at what happened when cut price movie mogul Roger Corman set up shop in the West of Ireland for a few years in the mid to late 90s. He churned out 20 movies, got into some controversy and was gone almost as quickly, leaving a random assortment of artisans who had learned the movie trade in the best way possible, by making terribly cheap movies in a shed in Connemara.

Created by Brian Reddin, the documentary is insightful and entertaining, featuring perfectly self-aware comments from Corman himself and went on to win the Spirit of the Festival at Sky Road. Happily, there's another chance to see the film as its set to show in the IFI for the Stranger than Fiction documentary season.

The screening takes place on Saturday the 27th of September and its followed by a Q&A with Reddin, who has proven to be just as entertaining as the doc.

Book your tickets right here.

The IFI Stranger than Fiction fest runs at the IFI from the 25th to the 28th of September 2014.
