Robert Redford’s multi-Oscar®-winning directorial debut stars Donald Sutherland and Mary Tyler Moore as a wealthy Chicago couple struggling to come to terms with the death of one son and the attempted suicide of another. This special screening, part of the Illuminate series, is introduced by filmmaker Frank Berry (Michael Inside), who describes the impact it had on him: ‘Ordinary People revealed to me that films could be much more than entertainment. For me, it’s one of those early influences that you carry around with you as a measure of what a film can do and mean to a person.

The screening will include an extended introduction by Award-Winning Irish Filmmaker, Frank Berry, who has curated the film for the Illuminate series.
