Some Say Chance @ Carlow Arts Festival 2017

June 6, 2017


Some Say Chance (1934), by Irish author-turned-filmmaker Michael Farrell (1899-1962), was thought to be lost until various 16mm cans containing partial rough-cuts and rushes were donated to the IFI Irish Film Archive. Filmmaker Dean Kavanagh has partially reconstructed the film using private letters and the surviving 16mm elements for a project curated by Sunniva O'Flynn of the Irish Film Institute. Some Say Chance also features Maureen O'Hara in her first screen role.


The film previously screened at the Barbican in 2016 and will have its Irish premiere at the Carlow Arts Festival on Friday June 9th, 2017. With live musical accompaniment by internationally renowned cellist Kate Ellis.
