Hubert Butler: Witness To The Future


Hubert Butler was one of the main reasons that Antony Farrell decided to establish The Lilliput Press in 1984, after discovering that Butler’s work was out of print. In a detailed and intriguing documentary feature HUBERT BUTLER: WITNESS TO THE FUTURE, director Johnny Gogan traces the fascinating life and output of this prolific man. With contributions from Chris Agee, John Banville, Lara Marlowe and more, Witness to the Future is essential viewing for any Butler fan.

The film is currently touring nationally, and will be screened in The New Theatre in Dublin’s Temple Bar on Saturday at 3pm, and on Sunday at 4pm and again at 7pm. Tickets are available on the door, and Gogan will be present at all screenings.

Our publisher, Antony Farrell, will be speaking about the film on Sean O’Rourke’s radio programme on RTE Radio 1 on Friday morning from 10am.
