article The Irish Times newspaper has published a special article, “What the ‘Chemical Tanker News’ article”, with the words “The Irish Times has published” on its front page.
The article says: “It’s not just about what’s on the screen but also what’s behind the scenes.
A new documentary by the Irish Times” is about “the history of Irish petroleum and the history of the ‘tanker news’.”
The documentary, titled The Chemical Tanker: The Untold Story of the First Irish Oil Company, was produced in partnership with the Irish Film and Television Institute (IFTI).
The documentary was shown in Ireland and was filmed at the Irish Petroleum Museum in Dublin, the first time the programme was screened in Ireland.
The Irish film and TV institute, IFTI, said it is an important documentary which is also timely as the “history of the Irish petroleum industry is under renewed scrutiny”.
“The film also looks at the role of Irish Petroleum in the oil wars of the early 20th century, its role in the Anglo-Irish Treaty of 1922 and its contributions to the development of modern manufacturing and science,” the institute said in a statement.
“The production is a tribute to the great Irish producers and the Irish public.”
The film is produced by the Institute for the Study of Irish Cinema (ISIC), which was founded in the 1960s by the late Sir John Hall.
The film has been screened at the Institute’s annual Festival of Science in Dublin and is expected to be shown in other countries later this year.
Ifti director and former Irish prime minister Martin McGuinness said: “I think the film is a brilliant piece of cinema.
It’s very timely.
It shows how the history and the industry were intertwined in the 20th Century, but how they came to be.”
It is a fascinating story.
We are very proud to be working with Irish Film & Television Institute on this film and to be able to share it with Irish audiences.””
The documentary will hopefully give a little insight into the people and companies who have been around in the Irish oil industry, and will give a real insight into how this company came to become what it is today,” Mr McGuinness added.
