Childrens group - this Sunday

Anti-authoritarian kids group




Anti-authoritarian kids group
Sunday 3pm
Seomra Spraoi
4 Mary's Abbey, on the Luas tracks, grey door, opposite Rhodes restaurant.

Whether you are a parent or just interested in kids, come along to talk about kids, different ways to practice parenting, organise childcare and relate to education.

This is the initial meeting, with a hope to move forward into more regular get-togethers - weekly or monthly, possibly even longer-term projects around childcare/education.
Bring the kids and toys/snacks to share.

The Seomra Spraoi cafe is on from 2pm, so come earlier if you want a good meal!

Film screening tonight and every Wednesday

Notable themes of the film include youth culture, delinquency, social unrest and future uncertainty weighed against the historical spectre of nuclear destruction and Japan's post-war economic revival.

Akira (アキラ, Akira?) is a 1988 Japanese animated film co-written and directed by Katsuhiro Otomo based on his manga of the same name. The movie led the way for the growing popularity of anime in the West, with Akira considered a forerunner of the second wave of anime fandom that began in the early 1990s. One of the reasons for the movie's success was the highly advanced quality of its animation. At the time, most anime was notorious for cutting production corners with limited motion, such as having only the characters' mouths move while their faces remained static. Akira broke from this trend with meticulously detailed scenes, exactingly lip-synched dialogue — a first for an anime production (voices were recorded before the animation was completed, rather than the opposite) — and super-fluid motion as realized in the film's more than 160,000 animation cels.[1] It is regarded by critics as one of the greatest animated films ever made.[2]

While most of the character designs and basic settings were directly adapted from the original 2,182 page manga epic, the restructured plot of the movie differs considerably from the print version, pruning much of the last half of the book.

Notable themes of the film include youth culture, delinquency, social unrest and future uncertainty weighed against the historical spectre of nuclear destruction and Japan's post-war economic revival. This pervasive atmosphere of impending doom is set to fuse in the feature's tag line, "Neo-Tokyo is about to E•X•P•L•O•D•E."

Suggested Donation: Waged/Unwaged 2.50 /2.00

Directions:

Coming from Capel St bridge, turn left at the Boar's Head off Capel Street, large grey-blue building on your right, old Melody Maker building. It is across the road from the "Capel Building" and Rhodes restaurant. It is on the Luas track.

This will be the second film screening in the new Seomra Spraoi (Dublin Social Centre) location. The aspiration is that there will be a D.I.Y weekly screening in Sproai Spraoi.
