Between Land And Sea & Further Beyond involving drama about Mathilde, a young French Red Cross doctor, who comes to the aid of a group of nuns, many of whom have been raped by Soviet soldiers.

Based on real events, director Anne Fontaine (Coco Before Chanel) explores this fraught situation with great humanity and sensitivity.

Mathilde protects the nuns not only from further attacks but also from the Mother Superior who'd prefer to conceal the scandal at all costs.

The Innocents is an emotionally layered, tender and insightful drama. The complexities of trauma and shame are deftly and sensitively handled through the prism of faith and compassion.

The Innocents screens in Garter Lane Arts Centre on Sunday, March 12th at 7.30pm. Booking 051-855038 & garterlane.ie.

Two contrasting Irish made documentaries are on the running order in Garter Lane Arts Centre next week. Between Land and Sea runs on Tuesday 21st at 7.30pm. Directed by Ross Whitaker who gave us Unbreakable: The Mark Pollock Story, it follows the lives of surfers based in Lahinch both in and out of the water.

The following night, Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor take as their point of departure the compelling 18th Century figure, Ambrose O’Higgins - father of Bernardo O’Higgins, the first leader of Independent Chile - and attempt to retrace his remarkable journey from Ireland to Chile in Further Beyond. Taking an unconventional approach to the traditional biopic the filmmakers get sidetracked into a competing storyline of immigration and displacement. Booking 051-855038 and garterlane.ie.
