IFI & EXPERIMENTAL FILM CLUB: STREET FILMS

Director:

Bow Street: 28 mins, Ireland, 2010, Digi-beta; Ride City: 10 mins, Ireland, 1999, Digi-beta; Crosswalk: 19 mins, U.S.A., 2010, Digi-beta; In The Street: 16 mins, U.S.A.,1948, 16mm


Curated by Aoife Desmond and introduced by Hugh Campbell, Professor and Dean of Architecture at UCD, Street Films conveys the beauty and complexity of the urban everyday. The programme centres on In the Street, a short film made by American photographer and filmmaker Helen Levitt (with James Agee and Janice Loeb), which documents the vibrant improvisations of a busy Harlem Street in New York.

Contemporary filmmakers Jeanne Liotta, Moira Tierney and Tadhg O’Sullivan all create intimate place portraits on film of, respectively, a Good Friday procession in New York, the Smithfield horse market’s battle for survival and the contradictions of poverty and wealth on Bow Street in Dublin.
