I Am Belfast


28 February, 2016

As a director, Mark Cousins has captured everything from the history of film to the desires of  D H Lawrence. Now he ventures back home with a portrait of his native Belfast, depicted here as a copper-haired woman (Helena Bereen) who has survived times of violence, despair and elation. Cousins’ playful dialogue with her unfolds around archive footage, interviews and images, finding great beauty in the familiar and mundane. Cousins doesn’t avoid the bitter conflicts of the past, but travels beyond the divisions to find humanity, hope and the indomitable spirit of the city. A love letter straight from the heart.

Director Mark Cousins will introduce the film on Tue 23 Feb (15.30).
