Screening followed by panel discussion presented in association with Grangegorman Histories

This musical odyssey traveling the length of Dublin’s North Circular Road, from the Phoenix Park to Dublin Port, explores the history, music and residents of this richly storied street. While this documentary feature film explores many dark narratives from the city’s history, from colonialism, to mental health, to drug wars, imprisonment, and the struggle for women’s liberation, the film is also smattered with Dublin humour and celebrates the power of community – evident in the battle to save the legendary Cobblestone Pub, and in the celebrations for Kellie Harrington’s homecoming. There is shadow and light in the musical vignettes from John Francis Flynn, Séan Ó Túama, Eoghan O’Ceannabháin, Ian Lynch and Gemma Dunleavy. This screening will be followed by a discussion presented in association with Grangegorman Histories and the Royal Irish Academy, with Catriona Crowe MRIA, Professor Paul Rouse, Professor Brendan Kelly and director Luke McManus.
