The Douglas Hyde is delighted to present a special in-person screening of Petname: Momma . Me Mudder . Sis . Brodder . Sweetie . Carmen . Plummy(2014) by Holly Graham and Fi Dem II (2019) by Zinzi Minott. The screening is presented as part of Alice Rekab’s multi-platform project FAMILY LINES and will be introduced by Holly Graham and Alice Rekab.
Momma Carmen Plummy looks at names and pet-names within Caribbean family tradition. Often eclipsing an individual’s christian name, these nicknames denote familiar relationships and reference familial structure.
Aiming to platform the voices of Black artists and artists of colour, and to represent intergenerational legacies of self-representation in the production of film, writing and visual art, Alice Rekab and The Douglas Hyde have invited Holly Graham to select a film that has influenced and/or inspired her. Graham has invited artist Zinzi Minnott to screen her work Fi Dem II (2019).
The screening takes place at the Thomas Davis Theatre, Trinity College, Dublin. Free, no booking required.
