Join us for a special screening of ‘The People There to Catch Us’ at the Stella Cinema in Rathmines in Dublin on September 24th to mark World Cancer Research Day, as part of the Science on Screen initiative.  

The showing will take place on World Cancer Research Day at 10 am. (Doors will be open from 9 am for teas and coffees before the event.) It will be followed by a Q&A with cancer researchers, patients and filmmakers. 

‘The People There to Catch Us’ tells the story of Tom Hope and Rachel O’Mahony, two cancer survivors who work alongside researchers at CÚRAM and Precision Oncology Ireland (POI), to help improve the lives of others living with the disease.  

The documentary was produced by Ronan Cassidy of Carbonated Comet and Directed by Luke Brabazon.  

This is the latest Science on Screen Documentary, a joint initiative between CÚRAM, the SFI Research Centre for Medical Devices at University of Galway, and Ardán, the non-profit organisation across Ireland to support creatives within the audio-visual industry.
