We will be launching it on Tuesday 9th December at the Irish Film Institute with a screening of Ingram’s 1926 World War One film, Mare Nostrum. This will be accompanied with a new score by Dublin-based silent film specialists, 3epkano. The event is supported by Trinity College’s Visual and Performing Arts Fund.
