STELLA Days returns by popular demand to The Source Arts Centre, Thursday on Wednesday, July 4th at 8pm.

Directed by Thaddeus O’Sullivan, filmed in Fethard and set in Borrisokane during the 1950s Father Daniel Barry (Martin Sheen) tackles a fundraising challenge and satisfies a personal passion by setting up the Stella Cinema in the north Tipperary village.

Fr Barry faces opposition from every side, from doubters, disapproving parishioners and even his own crisis of conscience.

Will he manage to resolve the conflicts between love and duty, hope and faith, the past and the future, Rome and Hollywood?

Stella Days encapsulates the dilemma of 1950’s Ireland - on the cusp of the modern but still clinging to the traditions of the Church.
