IRELAND ON SUNDAY: SEAVIEW

Director: NICKY GOGAN & PAUL ROWLEY


Ireland on Sunday is a new strand of programming at the IFI which offers audiences and filmmakers an opportunity to engage with new Irish work. This month we have Still Films’ avant-garde documentary Seaview.Over a three year period, filmmakers nicky Gogan and Paul Rowley and soundscape artist denis Macnulty visited Mosney, the former Butlins holiday Camp that’s now a holding centre for asylum seekers. The film chronicles the static lives of the centre’s occupants as they wait, in some cases for years, for the government to process their claims. Disembodied voices tell gruelling tales of persecution and exile over images of the camp’s faded seaside glamour. Seaview was selected for the Forum at this year’s Berlin Film Festival and has garnered great critical acclaim on the festival circuit ever since. This ireland on Sunday screening offers dublin audiences an opportunity to see a highly creative new documentary. We are delighted that nicky Gogan and denis Macnulty will take part in a postscreening Q & A.
