A Harbour Town – Phantoscope (NC) Book Tickets
104 mins – Ireland 2013 – Dir: Dean Kavanagh
Starring: Leon Kavanagh, John Curran and Rouzbeh Rashidi
Phantoscope, the Triskel Christchurch experimental film screening series, is delighted to welcome one of Ireland’s most visionary filmmakers, Dean Kavanagh, to introduce his latest feature, A Harbour Town. This journey into the dark visions of a small coastal town might be made of memories of the inhabitants or memories created by the place itself. It blurs the boundaries between banal details of daily life and the weirdness of our unconscious, often tactile perception of them. Kavanagh’s almost wordless films are deeply immersive experiences, heavy on unsettling atmosphere and powerful visual detail. For Jit Phokaew of Limitless Cinema, “Kavanagh is an impressionist filmmaker… [he] can use a camera like a paintbrush. There are very few filmmakers that I know who can do this”.
The short film Maritime, also directed by Dean Kavanagh, will also be screened.
