Book Tickets

With commentary by John Sherlock Assistant Professor of Screenwriting at TCD, Justin Macgregor.

Absurdist comedy from Sweden’s Roy Anderson. Taking a look at corporate life, the former commercials director uses a fairly static camera to record seemingly disconnected events – a man losing his job, another burning down his shop; a magician sawing a volunteer in half.

Justin Macgregor will talk about the Scandinavian comic film and the keen edge it negotiates with tragedy.

This screening is part of the IFI Evening Course Comic Cuts which runs from October 10th to November 14th 2017. There are six screenings in all with expert commentary and discussion, all for €70 (€65 concessions). To book your place, call Sharon Corrigan on 01 679 5744 or email scorrigan@irishfilm.ie.
