All ticket holders for the cancelled screenings will be contacted. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Dir. Marie Amachoukeli-Barsacq, France, 2023, 84 mins. French with English subtitles. Cast. Louise Mauroy-Panzani, Ilça Moreno Zego, Abnara Gomes Varela.

Cléo (an exceptional performance by six-year-old Louise Mauroy-Panzani) loves her nanny Gloria more than anything. When Gloria suddenly has to return home to Cape Verde to look after her own children, Gloria invites Cléo to visit her and the two have to make the most of their last summer together. A film that works both as a simple heartfelt drama and as a clear allegory (and critique) of colonialism, Ama Gloria is a beautifully drawn study of a young girl on a steep learning curve about the broader contexts of her, and other people’s worlds. Marie Amachoukeli's outstanding feature was the opening film of Cannes Critics’ Week 2023 and has been an audience favourite at film festivals across Europe including London and Dublin.
