Cinephiles Film Club is screening a film, ‘The Crying Game’ on February 20 at Lamakaan from 7pm onwards. Directed byNeil Jordan, the film is about: At a fairground in rural Northern Ireland, Provisional IRA volunteer Fergus and a unit of other IRA members, including a woman named Jude, led by Maguire, kidnap Jody, a black British soldier, after Jude lures him to a secluded area with the promise of sex. The IRA demands the release of imprisoned IRA members, threatening to execute Jody in three days if their demands are not met. Fergus guards Jody and develops a bond with him, much to the chagrin of the other IRA men; Jody tells Fergus the story of the Scorpion and the Frog.

Jody persuades Fergus to promise to seek out his girlfriend Dil in London should Jody be killed. The deadline set by Jody's captors’ passes and with none of the IRA's demands being met, Jody is to be killed. When Fergus takes him into the woods to carry out the sentence, Jody makes a break for it. Fergus cannot bring himself to shoot the fleeing Jody in the back but Jody is accidentally run over and killed by a British armoured personnel carrier, as they move in to assault the IRA safe-house.v
