The CCI has joined forces with the cinema Les 3 Luxembourg, the Irish Film Institute and Irish Film Board to promote contemporary Irish film and bring it to a wider public in France. Just 5 minutes from the CCI, you will be able to enjoy even more comfortable screenings of Irish feature, short and documentary films subtitled in French, as well as discussions with film directors, producers and actors.
This screening launches our first CinéCCI to take place in Les 3 Luxembourg.
Terri Hooley is a radical, rebel and music-lover in 1970s Belfast when the bloody conflict known as The Troubles shuts down his city. As all his friends take sides and take up arms, Terri opens a record shop on the most bombed half-mile in Europe and calls it Good Vibrations. Through it he discovers a compelling voice of resistance in the city's nascent underground punk scenes. Galvanising the young musicians into action, he becomes the unlikely leader of a motley band of kids and punks who join him in his mission to create a new community, an alternative Ulster, to bring his city back to life. Part rockumentary, part biopic, this Northern Irish film explores the man, the myth and the streets where that wayward narrative was forged.
"An absolute humdinger [of a film] with real heart and soul." (The Observer)
