Cork Film Festival, Wolf Mankowitz, Timothy J O'Sullivan, Lord Mayor

Description

This black and white photo is of a large group of festival delegates spread out across the stage seated behind the Lord Mayor, Timothy J O’Sullivan, who is speaking at the microphone. The delegates, all men in dark suits, are seated in front of large curtain drapes. We note the back of the conductor, in the orchestra pit below, and the young faces of seated musicians partially hidden by floral arrangments.

The Fine Gael Lord Mayor, Timothy J O’Sullivan, was Lord Mayor of Cork during 1971-1972 which helps us date this photo. We notice the dark-haired English screenwriter, Wolf Mankowitz, seated behind the Lord Mayor, wearing a dark polo neck top under his suit. Mankowitz moved to Cork in 1971 to avail of Charles Haughey’s generous tax policy towards artists. In 1972 Mankowitz wrote and directed The Hebrew Lesson starring Milo O’Shea, Patrick Dawson, and Harry Towb. It was shown at the Cork Film Festival in 1972.
