Presented by Out To Lunch, Queen’s Film Theatre and the Seamus Heaney Centre at Queen’s.

Paul Muldoon and Director Alan Gilsenan will take part in a Q&A following the screening.

A feature-length documentary on the Armagh-born poet and Pulitzer Prize-winner Paul Muldoon, in which key moments in his creative life, which began with him writing poems in Irish as a schoolboy, are explored by many of the musicians Paul has worked with over the years.

The film creatively composes the story of his life through poems and special performances. Directed by renowned Irish documentarian Alan Gilsenan, Muldoon himself narrates this unique Irish language film, which is an expression of his deep love of song lyrics and poetry. Featuring Paul Simon, Liam Neeson, PJ Harvey, Ruth Negga, Paul Brady, and Iarla Ó Lionáird, amongst others, and using Muldoon’s own words, the film is an imaginative and innovative tribute to a great literary mind.
