BIBA Members & Friends,

As a business organization, THE GUARANTEE, Directed by Ian Power, might be of particular interest. The decision of the Irish government to guarantee the entire domestic banking system in 2008 was the most significant in modern Irish history. THE GUARANTEE tells the true story of what happened that night, and why. Screening begins at 3PM on Saturday, March 21st at Somerville Theatre 5.  

It looks to be an entertaining weekend!
