Book Tickets

A programme of short films selected by artist-filmmaker Myrid Carten, followed by post-screening Q+A.

The documentary form has often answered the call of the difficult and the distant, the exotic and alien. This programme look at how we find ourselves in the other, at how places and people inhabit us like second-hand smoke. How can cinema show this porousness? What happens (to film, to us) when it does?

Includes a preview of Myrid’s new work Sorrow had a baby– aemi Film Commission 2021, supported by The Arts Council. After the screening Docs Ireland programmer Ruairí McCann will lead a short Q&A with Myrid.
