IMAGINING ULYSSES

Director: LINDSAY ANDERSON

IRELAND • 2004 • COLOUR • DIGITAL BETACAM • 90 MIN


Imagining Ulysses is a visually stunning and highly inventive documentary on the writing and reading of Joyce’s epic novel.

In eighteen different ‘episodes’, each designed in a distinctive style, the film honours the spirit of Joyce’s Ulysses in a most imaginative and accessible way. It draws from a rich variety of contemporary and historical material, presenting perspectives on Ulysses (and our engagement with it) which range from the parodic to the reverential. Narrated by Brenda Fricker, with Patrick Bergin as the voice of Joyce, the film features insightful interviews with Neil Jordan, Roddy Doyle, Martin Amis, Irvine Welsh, Camille Paglia, Enda O’Brien and Frank McCourt.

Producers David Blake Knox and Hilary Fennell will introduce the film, which was awarded the Gold Hugo at the Chicago Intercom Film Festival, the Torc for Best Documentary at the Celtic Film Festival and Best Feature Documentary at the Santa Cruz International Film Festival.

This screening is presented by the James Joyce Centre in association with the IFI.
