Irish Film Institute





On February 2nd, IFI and the Museum of Ireland Literature (MoLI) celebrate James Joyce’s birthday and the publication date of Ulysses (1922) with work commissioned by MoLI.

Ulysses | Film

Alan Gilsenan’s Ulysses | Film is a personal response to, and cinematic ‘reading’ of, Joyce’s iconic novel. Fractured and poetic, reverent and irreverent, the film is a ragbag of sorts; a myriad of images and sounds emerging from the infinite wonders of Joyce’s imaginary world. Structured around the 18 episodes of the book, the film, narrated by Paul Durcan, acts as a distillation of Ulysses.

Wake the Streets

If you walk through the streets of Dublin, you can still trace the descriptions and hear the sounds of Joyce’s beloved city. This short film, directed by Susie Lopez and Dave Tynan, is a sprint through Joyce’s Finnegans Wake featuring an eclectic host of actors, poets (John Kelly and Paul Muldoon), performers and children reading passages from Joyce’s work in the places that inspired him.
