Áine Stapleton, made in collaboration with José Miguel Jiménez

This film screened 16th June 2016.

Lucia Joyce was a talented dancer, writer and musician. She spent her life under the control of her father James, her family and multiple doctors. Her time in Ireland during the 1930s – particularly in Bray, Co. Wicklow – was one of her few moments of freedom. This film deftly interweaves Lucia’s story with the filmmaker’s own to explore accounts of loss and trauma spanning over 100 years.

With a haunting electronic score by Somadrone, fine dance sequences, vivid underwater cinematography and graphic scenes of animal butchery.

 

50 mins, Ireland, 2015, Digital.
