SCREEN ON DEMAND + TALKBACK ON SUNDAY, JULY 19 @4pm EST
THE RING THAT TIED THE ROOM TOGETHER
(online screening + conversation)
Directed by Shane O'Keeffe and Louis Buggy
County Kilkenny, Ireland
The Tivoli Theatre has become thee holy ground for Irish wrestling the past four years, and this is all thanks to Over The Top Wrestling. A wrestling promotion originally created as an over 18’s experience, has given birth to new generation of pro wrestling in Ireland. Bringing to our isles the greatest international talents in the world as well as nurturing home grown l superstars such as WWE’s Jordan Devlin & Session Moth Martina, Joe Cabray has created something extremely unique. With the planned demolition of the Tivoli and OTT having outgrown the place they called home anyway, we take a look behind the scenes, and document this special night.
This program is presented in partnership with The Aisling Irish Community Center, The Consulate General of Ireland, New York, and through a generous grant from The Emigrant Support Program.
