This fascinating documentary is an exploration of seminal writer James Joyce’s native city, discovering the influences and settings for his life and work.
It presents an interweaving picture, focusing on Joyce’s family and their situation and his social and religious environment.
It contrasts the physical city that he knew with the city of his writings, through the eyes of Ulysses, characters Leopold Bloom and his women, from Molly Bloom to Anna Livia Plurabella.
Interviewees include Robert Nicholson (curator of the James Joyce Museum), David Norris (Trinity College lecturer and chairman of the James Joyce Cultural Centre) and Ken Monaghan (Joyce’s nephew).
