To mark Dementia Awareness Week, QFT is screening the 2001 biopic of Irish novelist, Iris Murdoch.
Featuring Dame Judi Dench, Kate Winslet and Jim Broadbent, the film follows Iris Murdoch through her early career and marriage to later life, where an Alzheimer’s diagnosis significantly impacts her writing and relationships.
"Kate Winslet as the younger Iris Murdoch and Judi Dench as the older version manage to bring the literary lioness to vibrant life." - New York Observer
This screening will be introduced by Belfast-based writer, Jan Carson and will be followed by a short Q&A with Dementia NI representative, Tara Collins.
