The Centre for Irish and Scottish Studies at the University of Otago is launching its first series of Irish film nights. The films will be screened on Wednesday evenings in Burns 7, Arts Building at 5:30pm.

Films have been chosen by University of Otago staff who will introduce their chosen film.

About the film

As a baby, Patrick (Cillian Murphy) is left by his mother on the steps of the rectory in their small Irish town. He's discovered by Father Liam (Liam Neeson), coincidentally his real father, and placed in an abusive foster home. By the time he's a teen, Patrick identifies himself as transgendered, renames himself Kitten and sets out for London with a rock group in hopes of finding his mother. Along the way he works variously as a magician's assistant, a prostitute and a dancer.
