IFI & INTERNATIONAL LITERATURE FESTIVAL DUBLIN: INNOCENCE OF MEMORIES

Grant Gee

This film screened 29th May 2016.

SPECIAL GUEST: We’re delighted to welcome director Grant Gee for a post-screening discussion with author Peter Murphy.

In the 1990s Orhan Pamuk, the Nobel Prize-winning author of My Name is Red, bought a rundown building in Beyoğlu, an unfashionable suburb of Istanbul. Over the next two decades he slowly turned it into a museum: a monument to the obsessive personality of Kemal, the fictional protagonist of his 2008 bestseller
The Museum of Innocence, who hoards every object relating to his secret affair with Füsun.

Directed by Grant Gee, the award-winning filmmaker whose Patience: After Sebald was screened
at the IFI as part of the festival in 2012, Innocence of Memories offers a dreamlike mediation on the novel, the museum, and Istanbul itself.

Presented in association with International Literature Festival Dublin.
