IN LOCO PARENTIS is a critically acclaimed film, which comes to the Eye Cinema direct from rave reviews at Sundance Film Festival. It is a hilarious yet intimate observational film about a fantastical Hogwarts-like boarding school in Kells, County Meath. A career of nearly fifty years at Headfort School is drawing to a close for teachers, John and Amanda Leyden who teach Latin and Maths and English and Electric Guitar. They have become legends with the mantra: reading! rithmetic! rock n roll! .... but for pupil and teacher alike, leaving school is the hardest lesson to learn.
The film makers Neasa Ni Chanain and David Rane will be attending a Question & Answer session with the audience on Fri 10th March after the 7pm show.
