‘Dear Daughter’ director Louis Lentin has died aged 80

‘Dear Daughter’ director Louis Lentin has died aged 80.

Mr Lentin was a respected theatre, film and television director.

Lentin made the acclaimed TV documentary ‘Dear Daughter’, which told the story of the childhood abuse suffered by the late Christine Buckley.

The programme was initially aired in 1996 but it was re-broadcast by RTÉ earlier this year, shortly after Buckley passed away following a long battle with cancer.

Lentin founded Art Theatre Productions in 1959 and was responsible for the first Irish productions of Krapp's Last Tape and Endgame.

Lentin was a member of Aosdána.
