IRELAND ON SUNDAY: IMMORTAL STORIES

Director: FERGUS DALY

78 minutes, Ireland, 2014, Digital


This film screened on Sunday 6th December 2015.

Ireland on Sunday is our monthly showcase for new Irish film.

An artist (Esperanza Collado) seeking inspiration for a project based on the classic Irish novel Melmoth the Wanderer (Maturin’s unique anatomy of torture and cruelty) travels across Europe absorbing traces of the book in the locations of its setting and in the places associated with the writers it influenced (perhaps only Ulysses has been a more influential Irish novel). Immortal Stories is an exploration of those hidden zones of great cities haunted by literary ideas and characters. It depicts the endless wandering of an artist undergoing an increasingly detached and disjointed experience of contemporary life.

In this latest feature-length work, documentarian and critic Fergus Daly again negotiates the intersection of art, cinema and philosophy.
