Running from July 19-22, Cork’s Triskel Christchurch will play host to Punk on Film, a season celebrating the legacy of the seminal punk movement that epitomises late 70’s Britain.

Amongst the screenings, The Damned: Don’t You Wish We Were Dead is a programme highlight with director Wes Orshoski at Triskel on Tuesday, July 21 to introduce the screening. The Sex Pistols documentary The Filth and The Fury, the 1977 film Punk In London and Rude Boy, the part fiction – part rockumentary film about The Clash, are also part of the season.

Speaking of the screening of his Damned doc, Orshoki said, “I’m really honored to be bringing The Damned: Don’t You Wish We Were Dead to Cork, and to the Triskel. This screening will happen in the middle of a bucket-list tour of Ireland for me, and I can’t wait to meet some punk fans in Cork and trade stories. Any and all U2 stories are welcome!”
