Presented in conjunction with the IMMA exhibition Vivienne Dick, 93% Stardust , the artist and film-maker Vivienne Dick selects a series of short films that explores several themes of her exhibition with regards female identity, urban street life and social politics set against the context of globalisation. Programmed in collaboration with AEMI & IFI, this special selection of short films draws attention to the language of Dick’s films influenced by the raw quality of American independent film making, to connect viewers to the subconscious of society.
More details and booking information to come shortly.
