Aidan Higgins doc screening / Christmas drinks – 11 December

11th December 2019 @ 6:30 pm


Where Would You Like The Bullet: a film about Aidan Higgins

followed by Christmas drinks.

The Irish Literary Society is banding together with the Irish Cultural Centre, Hammersmith to host a free screening of the UK premiere of a documentary on the Irish writer Aidan Higgins. Come along and be introduced to the Society and other London-Irish organisations on 11 December. Neil Donnelly’s new documentary ‘Where would you like the bullet: a film about Aidan Higgins’ will run from 18.30 to be followed by a Q&A with the director. The screening will be followed by Christmas drinks.

So come along, enjoy the film, if you like bring a mince pie or a dish to share. If you’re representing a cultural organisation do bring some flyers or a banner, it could be a great opportunity for stimulating conversations about future collaborations.

Asylum has been with me since I first read it in the 70s… Aidan has left us a vast map of London with the small roads that lead there from Kildare and elsewhere via a host of historical backgrounds and demeanours and aromas and cemeteries… a world of panel beaters somewhere off the long drags of Uxbridge. There are bad times so rich in detail that the sorrows are well hidden.Dermot Healy on 'Asylum' story in as Felo de Se (1960)
