We would like to invite you to an evening of poetry and film inspired by WB Yeats, in celebration of his 150th birthday. This event will feature a sneak preview of Offaly filmmaker Paddy Slattery’s film Sojourn.
Sojourn is a visual, musical and poetic meditation, about a writer named Aedh (Tristan Heanue) who finds a new muse. Her name is Aislinn (Nichola MacEvilly); a beautiful, playful and mischievous distraction. He falls in love and falls hard but with his routine lifestyle, he soon struggles to quench her insatiable desires. We follow Aedh through the emotional highs and devastating lows of this sojourn into love and despair.
It features originally penned poetry, narrated by Brendan Graham; an originally composed score by Dave McCune and cinematography by Gerard Walsh. Supporting roles include Evelyn Shaw, Catherine Merrigan, Richard Mason, Hayden Mason, Stephen Doring and Libby Kyle.
The evening will include a wine reception, some Yeats and Yeats inspired recitals, a viewing of Sojourn and a Q&A with some cast and crew straight after.
This is a free event but places are limited.
