Dancing at Lughnasa features five unmarried sisters living together outside the fictional town of Ballybeg in rural Ireland. The plot unfolds during the pagan Celtic festival, Lughnasa, a theme echoed by the return from a mission in Africa of the women’s brother Jack, a priest who appears to have abandoned Church teachings. The plot highlights tensions between Ireland’s pagan roots and Christianity, the history of relations between the Catholic Church and the state, and the human need to dance. (35mm Presentation)
