Summer of '69

In 1968 22 year old photographer Jim Sugar spent three months in the Republic of Ireland capturing the people and places of Ireland for a National Geographic Magazine feature article published in 1969. Thirty-four of those images appeared in the final article but over 10,400 images were actually taken.

During the summer of 2009, RTE asked Jim to retrace the steps of the original National GeographicBlacksmith  article. Although some of the people in the original article had died, many of the people and places remained very familiar.  
The one-hour movie based on his return trip was broadcast in Ireland on Radio Television Ireland (RTE) on December 29, 2009.  It received a 31% market share (very high).  Since then, Jim has received about 300 emails from Ireland commenting on the program--all but one of them positive.

Jim will screen the RTE film for a gathering of the Inisheer FamilyIrish Network Bay Area on July 29.
Please join Irish Network Bay Area and photographer and film-maker Jim Sugar for this special screening and talk about this wonderful and heart-warming movie.
