BECKETT / FILM PROGRAMME FOUR

Director: SEAN O MORDHA

1996 • 110 MINS.


Samuel Beckett: As The Story Was Told
Sean O Mordha’s second film about Beckett (after Silence to Silence) focuses on Beckett’s life, friends and colleagues. It explores the traumas of his formative years – his ill-fated love affair with his first cousin, the death of his father, his decorated service with the French Resistance and his relationship with fellow Irishman James Joyce. Patrick Magee’s television performance of Krapp’s Last Tape (1972)
is interwoven with key landscapes and personalities from Beckett’s life.
