90 mins – United Kingdom / United States / France 2017 – Dir: Lynne Ramsay
Starring: Joaquin Phoenix, Judith Roberts and Ekaterina Samsonov
There is a missing teenage girl and a tormented enforcer on a rescue mission to find her. The corrupt power he witnesses on his quest unleashes a storm of violent retribution. The short film Swimmer (2012, 17 minutes) will be shown before You Were Never Really Here.
There will be a post-screening discussion with Juliana de Albuquerque, who is a Brazilian writer and columnist for the newspaper Folha de S. Paulo. She lives in Cork and is currently writing a PhD thesis at UCC on Goethe’s Notion of Autonomy in relation to the feminine.
Earlier this year Juliana hosted a talk at Triskel Arts Centre following a screening of The Seventh Seal by Ingmar Bergman. She discussed Bergman’s work in connection with philosophy. She also spoke about the time she spent at The Bergman Estate, and how that contributed to her understanding of Bergman’s oeuvre.
