2nd Phantoscope Screening: Kavangh's A HARBOUR TOWN

 When Dean Kavanagh completed A Harbour Town last year, I expressed my stunned reaction to seeing it in this post.

I'm now delighted to be programming it in Cork, along with Kavanagh's short Maritime, as part of Triskel Christchurch Cinema's experimental film series Phantoscope on April 10th. Dean will be present at the screening and on hand for a Q&A.

Screening information and tickets can be obtained here.

Here's the official blurb:

Triskel Christchurch Cinema,  Tobin St., Cork
6.15pm, Thursday April 10th
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”.
