I Am Belfast

Celebrated cinephile Mark Cousins (The Story of Film: An Odyssey, A Story of Children and Film) writes and directs this dreamlike evocation of Belfast, beautifully shot by Christopher Doyle (In the Mood for Love, 2046). Go on an emotional journey through the rich, complex and often tragic history of the Northern Irish capital – accompanied by a powerful soundtrack by DJ and film composer David Holmes – and explore the poetic beauty of this controversial but inspiring city.
