In partnership with Guth Gafa International Documentary Film Festival, a screening of Donald Taylor Black’s new documentary, Skin in the Game (2012), is held at CCA. It examines the current financial crisis through the responses of a number of artists who are using it as subject matter for their work.

Participants include Christy Moore (musician) Seán Hillen (photographer) Rita Ann Higgins (poet) Brian Maguire (painter) David Quin (animator) Anthony Haughey (photographer) Nicky Gogan (filmmaker) David Bolger (choreographer) Gerald Dawe (poet) and David Monahan (photographer) as they look at emigration, ghost estates and the legacy of politicians and bankers. Roddy Doyle has written texts for the film that are voiced by actors including Lorcan Cranitch and Hilda Fay.

The screening is followed by a Q & A session with the director.
