I Am Belfast
  • Description

    I Am Belfast sees celebrated filmmaker, writer and curator Mark Cousins (A Story of FIlm, Here Be Dragons) cast his painterly eye on his home town, the port city Belfast.

    Beautifully shot by Christopher Doyle (In the Mood for Love, Rabbit-Proof Fence) and with a powerful soundtrack by the great Northern Irish composer David Holmes (Ocean’s Eleven, ’71, Hunger), Cousins’ film takes viewers on an emotional journey through the complex and sometimes tragic history of the Northern Irish capital, embodied as a 10,000-year-old woman, compellingly portrayed by Helena Bereen (Hunger, Mo). Interspersing archive material (often detailing the horrors of the Troubles) and newly-filmed footage, I Am Belfast is an impassioned and politically engaged love letter to Cousins’ hometown.

    Extras:

    • Interview with director Mark Cousins
    • Interview with actress Helena Bereen
    • Interview with cinematographer Christopher Doyle
    • Making-of documentary

    Cast and Crew:

    Director: Mark Cousins (The Story of Film: An Odyssey, A Story of Children in Film)

    Awards and Reviews:
