Solas Nua's CIFF@Home with NYU DC Dialogues presents Out of Place.
Wednesday, June 28 • 6 PM ET
2022 | Documentary | Runtime: 71 minutes | English
A meditation on the role music plays in building community, exploring the tensions that emerge when musicians struggle to carve out a space for themselves in their city.
Featuring performances from Denise Chaila, God Knows, Hey Rusty, His Father’s Voice, MuRli, and Post Punk Podge & the Technohippies, Out of Place is an intimate portrayal of a local music scene, capturing the incredible diversity of cultural activity happening in Limerick City.
A pre-recorded Q&A with director Graham Patterson will air on June 28th. The discussion will be moderated by Maedhbh Mc Cullagh, Director of the Capital Irish Film Festival.
Registration will give you access to an on-demand film link to view Out of Place ahead of the Q&A discussion, which will only be accessible via Zoom on June 28th.
Exploring music made at a local level, this film follows a variety of musicians as they try to navigate their changing city, in an attempt to find places to create, perform and connect with others. This proves difficult as space provided for culture is always shrinking, turning the act of music-making into an act of defiance.
Filmed with a DIY spirit, this is both a celebration of music as a form of individual and collective expression.
Hand-picked by Solas Nua's Capital Irish Film Festival, CIFF@Home with NYU DC Dialogues is a bi-monthly, curated series of Irish film.
Selected for you to watch from the comfort of your own home, registration will give you access to an on-demand film link to view any time between now and June 28, as well as a Q&A that will be streamed via Zoom Webinar after you have watched the film on your own schedule.
Graham Patterson is a filmmaker based in Limerick City, Ireland. Since 2015, he has been collaborating and documenting artists from the burgeoning Irish music scene, creating music videos for acts including TPM, Just Mustard, and Bleeding Heart Pigeons. In his feature length debut, Graham has expanded the connection with the musicians he works with, turning his focus behind the scenes to share their stories.
Graham is part of Féile na Gréine, a cultural collective of musicians, artists, and designers in Limerick City, who are the team behind the film. As director, editor and co-writer of OUT OF PLACE, Graham worked alongside sound engineers, photographers and filmmakers, many of whom double as musicians who play in bands active in Limerick’s music scene.
