Screening of A Bit of the Other Directed by Edmund Lynch
Venue: Seminar Room, County Library, Tallaght
From its origins as a one-off extravaganza in Side nightclub in 1987 to its current status as an annual entertainment highlight which packs out the Olympia Theatre in Dublin each March, A Bit of the Other is a documentary celebration of Alternative Miss Ireland and all its madness and magnanimity as a highly successful charity fundraiser. The documentary capture much of the music and mania of this yearâ€™s spectacular tenth AMI, featuring entrants from all corners of Ireland as well as France, England and the Philippines. Interwoven with this footage are memories and musings from AMI originators, creators, organisers and beneficiaries, judges past and present, former winner (and losers!) and AMI groupies and addicts.
