June’s programme continues our annual Joycean celebration with two films featuring poetry on the streets of Dublin.
A SENSE OF POETRY: THE POEM AS IRONY
This unusual short film, part of a Canadian educational series, is a visual illustration of the poem, The Beggars
of Dublin, by renowned Canadian poet Alden Nowlan. It follows a visitor to Dublin as he disembarks from a plane and wanders the streets of Dublin encountering beggars and homeless people along the way.
