Description

The original 1958 festival programme is a soft card-bound issue measuring 16.5cm x 24.5cm. The bind is stapled and it has 31 numbered pages. There is some wear & tear on the cover – particularly around the staples on the spine and the top left corner.

The pdf of the 1958 programme includes profiles of President of the Jury John Grierson, animator Joy Batchelor, film critic Bjørn Rasmussen, and MGM rep Douglas King. Articles include Robert Flaherty in Retrospect by PO’C (Padraig O Coileáin?) (pp.23-26) and A Tribute to Bresson by Robert Breathnach (pp.27-31). The programme listing includes the German-made Kanonen Serenade (Cannon Serenade) (Wolfgang Staudte, 1958) starring the Italian actor and director Vittorio De Sica, who was a regular visitor to the festival in its early years. De Sica also starred in the Italian comedy film Padri e Figli (Fathers and Sons) (Mario Monicelli, 1957) which also played at the festival in 1958.
