waterfordfilmforall and Garter Lane Arts Centre present Loveless

Oscar nominated, Loveless is the fifth film from Russian writer/Director Andrey Zvyagintsev. Zhenya and Boris are going through a vicious divorce marked by resentment, frustration and bitter recriminations. Already embarking on new lives, each with a new partner, they are impatient to start again, to turn the page – even if it means threatening to abandon their 12-year-old son Alyosha. Loveless uses its riveting portrait of a family in crisis to offer a thought-provoking commentary on modern life in Russia. See it in Garter Lane Arts Centre on Tuesday, March 20th at 7.30pm.

"Coastal Views" by Lisa Keane.

Lisa Keane is a Waterford based artist who graduated from WIT with a Ba Hons in arts in 2007.

"Art was always a big part of me, ever since I was a kid. I loved anything I could make something with, from pencils and paint to plaster moulding sets and embroidery. I studied art in college because it was all I wanted to do. After the birth of my second son I reignited my passion for painting again. It started with a good friend of mine asking me to design a tattoo, she was so happy with it that it gave me that spark to keep going, keep painting and improving. Most of my inspiration stems from my boys and our adventures. I try to capture them in my paintings,their personality and innocence in a raw style to create a sense of memory or nostalgia. We love the seaside, it's our favourite place and I find the sea draws me, to me there is nothing better than sitting watching the kids' excitement and energy, and the water. I love the contrasting textures of the sea and cliffs, stoney strands and rocky coves. I try to convey how these places feel using lots of colour and light."
