    • Synopsis
    • The 1929 adaptation of Liam O Flaherty’s The Informer has all the hallmarks of a classic film noir, just a decade too early and an ocean away. Set in the revolutionary ferment of newly independent Ireland, this tale of personal betrayal is an impressively international affair. The BFI National Archive’s recent restoration of this classic silent is presented with a new recorded score by Irish composer and violist Garth Knox.
