                Moonage Daydream                                 Wednesday 11th January
                   David Bowie was one of the most prolific and influential artists of our time. Working
                     most notably in music and film, Bowie also explored various other art forms:
                         dance, painting, sculpture, video collage, screenwriting, acting and live

                                              Moonage Daydream is the first film sanctioned by the
                                               Bowie estate. In 2017, the estate presented filmmaker

       People Wipe Me
       Thursday 2nd February
       ‘People Wipe Me’ is a one-woman show about a contrary
       woman with wonky eyes. Derbhile Graham is partially
       sighted. In plain English, that means she doesn’t see very
       well. And this has given her freedom to be a contrarian, a
       woman who is not afraid to swim against the tide, even if
       it makes her arms sore.

       Over 60 minutes, she takes us on a tour of her world, a
       world full of lumps and bumps for her feet to trip on. Her
       style could be described as confessional comedy. She
       makes people laugh, but she also encourages them to ask
       themselves an important question:

       Am I willing to pay the price for being myself?

The Peculiar Sensation
of Being Pat Ingoldsby
Wednesday 8th February
This creative documentary investigates the
idiosyncratic world of Irish writer Pat Ingoldsby.
Ingoldsby’s poems and candid anecdotes bear
witness to a visceral relationship with his beloved
Dublin and its many social, institutional, and
architectural changes over 80 years. He is fondly
remembered as an eccentric 1980s TV presenter
(Pat’s Hat, Pat’s Chat) and more recently as a
stalwart of the Dublin streets where he recites and
sells his many books of poetry.

Seamus Murphy has crafted a moving and entertaining portrait of a maverick who has faced
personal challenges with apparent equanimity finding balm in his writing which infuses the banality
of the everyday with surreal humour.
‘A charming and illuminating portrait of the people’s poet uncovers his fascinating background.’

a fantastic voice to have in this film, because
I felt it needed something far more Dublin
than I was getting.”

“Before I worked with him, I'd sort of heard
about him,” says Murphy. “I'd seen him on
the television when I was a teenager. I'd be
passing through the room and I'd see this
character. I could see he was a cool guy.

Murphy was warned – “I was told to be
careful because he’s very prickly, he hates
photographers and people approaching him
with any type of camera.” And indeed, when
Murphy went looking for Pat, he wasn’t
there. “He was completely elusive; he was a
ghost!” says the director.

When Murphy finally tracked down
Ingoldsby, the two quickly developed a
rapport and the filmmaker became even
more aware of what an important and
singular Dublin voice the writer had, both
in his poetry and in his philosophical and
empathetic way of viewing the world.

Stories turned into conversation which            were often left feeling isolated, alone and
turned into interviews and Murphy started         forgotten. It speaks not only to the isolation,

Return to Dust
Wednesday 12th April
A tender tale about the transformative nature of love,
Return to Dust — the sixth film by acclaimed Chinese
director Li Ruijun — expands into a poignant story of
resilience against the conventions of society and the
exploitation of farm workers.

Shot entirely in Li Ruijun’s home province of Gansu,
against the backdrop of majestic sand dunes, Return
to Dust draws from the extreme beauty of the region’s
barren landscape for the stark poetry and the intense
simplicity of its absorbing storytelling.
