Cork Film Festival, in partnership with the IFI, is delighted to present The Cohens and Kellys (1926). This lively ethnic comedy of feuding Irish and Jewish families in 1920s New York is filled with stock characters played with great comic flair –the hard-working Jewish storekeeper (George Sidney), his anxious wife (Vera Gordon), the pugnacious Irish cop (Charlie Murray),and his feisty but warm-hearted wife (Cork-born Kate Price). Multiaward-winning accordionist Dermot Dunne and saxophonist Nick Roth, Artistic Director of the Yurodny Ensemble,will accompany the film with a score drawing lavishly on Irish and Jewish folk music traditions. Event generously supported by Cork Film Festival Friends.
