Knitting For Peace

A Tribute to Breda Lewis

Two documentaries, Mike Casey's Clown Around Lesotho and Dieter Auner's Leaving Transylvania, will be shown in Busker Browne's on Monday at 8pm. Free

Clown Around Lesotho follows three clowns from Clowns Without Borders Ireland, including Galway's Jonathan Gunning, as they travel across the HIV-ravaged Kingdom of Lesotho, performing to thousands of children.

Leaving Transylvania documents the exodus of the Transylvanian Saxons from Romania in the early 90s, an emigration that wiped out villages and endangered the 8oo years old cultural heritage. The film shows the disorientation of elderly Saxon couples from the village Arbegen, charging this documentary with intense emotion and bringing a little-known story to life.
