Screening at the Nenagh Arts Centre on March 13th and set against the backdrop of a lawless border during the last gasps of the Irish boom ‘Black Ice’ charts the story of Alice as she is seduced into the rhythmic rumbling world of local boy racers.
Alice is enticed from her middle-class world by the growling engine of Jimmy’s slick, black, Skyline.
Racing, dicing and drifting together on the winding back roads Alice and Jimmy dream of rally cars and make great plans to escape the cloying town.
But Jimmy doesn’t believe in playing it straight. He likes the taste of money and he likes to take short-cuts.
Despite her brother Tom’s warnings, Jimmy’s criminal behavior only makes Alice want him more while the greed that has taken hold of the community is about to claim its price in young lives.
Two years later an estranged Alice returns home to deal with the aftermath.
Directed by Johnny Gogan and featuring a young Irish cast ‘Black Ice’ screens at 8pm on Thursday, March 13th at the Nenagh Arts Centre in Banba Square.
Admission to the screening is priced at €8 and tickets are available on the door or in advance online at www.nenagharts.com.
