Brilliant news to hear that Director Camille Wainer’s ‘Thou Art: Dublin‘ will be premiered in the US at the Pembroke Taparelli Arts & Film Festival in Hollywood this coming November. ‘Thou Art: Dublin‘ is a full length documentary following the lives of five artists in Dublin during the post Celtic-Tiger period. ‘Thou Art; Dublin‘ will be screened at the Mary Pickford Theatre on November 3rd.
The Pembroke Taparelli Arts and Film Festival was founded as a means to provide independent artists committed to social justice with a place through which to share their work with our global community. The festival seeks to give a platform to artists who seek to use their voice in film, theatre, spoken word, painting, sculptor, and photography to bring to light such issues as, poverty, gender inequality, homelessness, hunger, physical and psychological abuse, racism, sex trafficking, war and grief.
The festival will be an intersection between art and social justice giving independent artists a place to create, thrive and bring to market work they are passionate about without fear it will never be seen. Artists are allowed to take risk, tell their stories as they work to change the world.
The PTAFF is dedicated to the discovery and presentation of emerging artists, giving them an opportunity to let their voices be heard around the world. Injustice in many forms is a reality affecting our global community, as artists we have a responsibility to stand up against injustice. Many artists take action to turn these injustices around through their work. We seek to support and aide these artist as they help to transform, save and change the lives of those who suffer, creating a sense of hope to fuel our struggle.
