IFI DOCUMENTARY FESTIVAL: THE GRACELESS AGE – THE BALLAD OF JOHN MURRY

Director: Sarah Share

90 mins, Ireland-Canada-USA, 2023, Digital

John Murry was on the cusp of greatness with his highly acclaimed album The Graceless Age (2013) when, addicted to heroin and creatively exhausted, he washed up on Irish shores a broken man. Now, he is ready to retrace his steps back into the dark heart of American life to face his difficult childhood, traumatic assault and resulting years of opioid addiction. Director Sarah Share (If I Should Fall From Grace) follows John’s journey from near death to redemption and a new zest for life and art through his outstanding music.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with Sarah Share and John Murry, hosted by Paul Duane, who is working with Murry on upcoming release All You Need is Death.
