News

The Irish Film Institute (IFI) has announced that it is to present the world première of ‘An Engineer Imagines’ — a cinematic ode to Peter Rice, one of the most distinguished engineers of the late 20th century, on Friday, September 28, at 6pm.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Marcus Robinson and Humbert Camerlo (the founder of the Full Moon Theatre in Gorgoubès).

Tracing Rice’s extraordinary life and career, from his Dundalk childhood to his work on the Sydney Opera House, the Pompidou Centre and the Lloyd’s building, to his untimely death in 1992, Marcus Robinson’s ‘An Engineer Imagines’ uses stunning time-lapse photography and revealing interviews to tell the story of a genius who stood in the shadow of architectural icons. Until now.

Tickets are available online here, the IFI Box office at 6 Eustace Street, Dublin 2, and over the phone at 01 679 3477.

The IFI Documentary Festival runs from September 26-30, 2018. For further information, please visit www.ifi.ie/docfest.
