Director: CLAIRE DIX

66 minutes, Ireland, 2013, Black and White, D-Cinema

GI, Costello and Willa Lee are street poets, hip-hop artists, rappers and song-writers from Dublin’s
Northside. Through their words and music they have found a way of expressing themselves and inspiring others to achieve the same. Claire Dix’s documentary, shot elegantly in black and white, is a film about music, redemption and the struggle to find and articulate meaning in an often chaotic world.

Performer James Costello will introduce this screening.
