Dublin: The Night of Ideas 2020 @ IFI [fr]

A night in the world, to think together!

Celebrating the stream of ideas between countries, cultures, topics and generations, The Night of Ideas takes place worldwide on Thursday 30th January 2020 and will focus on the theme: “Being Alive”. Guests from diverse backgrounds will gather to discuss the theme all across the five continents.


The French Embassy in Ireland and the Irish Film Institute in association with the Institut français present The Night of Ideas/La Nuit des idées in Dublin at the IFI.

Rock & Roll was created by rebels, natural wine too!
The world of wine has been shaken by a counter culture: around the world joyous rebels have invaded the vineyards to create the wine they love: a natural wine free of codes and norms.

While there are more than 3000 wine growers in France, less than three per cent of them are using organic or natural methods of wine production. For ethical reasons, this relatively small community of wine growers has chosen environmentally friendly farming practices aimed at finding the natural expression of “terroir” – the full breadth of land, geography and climate – and the living character of the wine. Documentary film-maker Bruno Sauvard followed this revolution in the South of France over the course of a year, from the harvest to the bottling, revealing a rising global movement for taste and sustainability.

This Irish Premiere screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring director Bruno Sauvard, award-winning journalist Catherine Cleary, Pamela Walsh co-founder and director of Wicklow Way Wines and environmental scientist Dr. Cara Augustenborg. The debate will explore the challenging ecological balances of our time in the global context of biodiversity loss as a result of climate change.

The event will end with a special French biodynamic wine reception in the foyer, courtesy of O’Briens Wine Beer Spirits.
