This screening of North Circular will be followed by a Q&A with director Luke McManus and hosted by Dara Ó Briain.
A special event screening of the multiple award-winning documentary musical travelling the length of Dublin's fabled North Circular Road, where local characters share their powerful and emotive stories, accompanied by traditional ballads and folk music. North Circular conjures the ghosts of the past while engaging with the conflicts and celebrations of today, with a spooky folk-horror mood and a little bit of Dublin humour too.
Shot in atmospheric black & white in a 4:3 aspect, the film includes performances from the newest stars of the Irish folk scene which is based in the neighborhood including Lisa O'Neill, Ian Lynch (Lankum), John Francis Flynn, Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin and a special appearance by Gemma Dunleavy (Up De Flats). North Circular has won awards at the Dublin, Louth and IndieCork Film Festivals and made its international premiere at the Sheffield DocFest.
This screening of North Circular will be followed by a Q&A with the film's director Luke McManus, hosted by comedian & TV presenter Dara Ó Briain, who returns to Dublin's North Circular Road every summer to attend the All Ireland Football Final in Croke Park.
This event is happening in association with the Cambridge Folk Festival
