Trans-Europ-Express, directed by French writer/filmmaker Alain Robbe-Grillet, eschews traditional focus on plot, action and character, and the need to impose order on narratives and events, in favour of a disjointed, dislocated sense of reality spurred along by the use of the vernacular of the thriller genre, and new narrative ideas such as the film-within-a-film. This collision of narrative spaces creates a dreamlike hyper-reality which can also be seen in the work of Chantal Akerman and Antonioni. 

This special screening will be introduced by artist Laurence Kavanagh and is held in association with Temple Bar Gallery + Studios on the occasion of their exhibition ‘Lights, Camera, Action!’ (February 25th – March 31st) which features his work. www.templebargallery.com
