Every day, the AFFR team highlights a number of films and specials. Here are Thursday 5 October's tips!

AFFR’s Top 3 for Thursday 5 October


Filmtip #1: The Mies van der Rohes, 21:00

Mies van der Rohe went through thick and thin at the expense of the women around him – women who helped create his myth. A shocking account of one of the most famous architects of the twentieth century.


Filmtip #2: Deep Rising, 21:00

Does the answer to the growing demand for environmentally friendly minerals lie on the ocean floor? Dive down to the spectacular untouched wilderness on the ocean floor, where huge quantities of manganese nodules grow. A film about the clash between human greed and nature preservation.


Filmtip #3: North Circular, 21:15

A documentary musical that travels the length of Dublin’s North Circular Road. Making a stop at each landmark along the way, it narrates stories of war, loss, mental health and gentrification in a visually and sonically magnificent way.
