Irish Film Screening – Yeats – A Vision

Yeats – A Vision will be screened on Wednesday, January 27th as a part of the Irish Popcorn! series for Solas Nua.

Yeats – A Vision is a 2013 documentary by director Alan Gilsenan, and producer Martin Mahin of Yellow Asylum Films.

The life and work of W.B. Yeats holds a particular place in hearts and imaginations across the world. This film is a response to that vast body of work – a visual and avowedly experimental ‘film-poem’. Using solely the words of Yeats, we attempted to take the viewer on a cinematic journey into his extraordinary imagination – an unconventional biography of sorts.

Post-screening discussion with director Alan Gilsenan in conversation with Cóilín Parsons, Associate Professor of English, Georgetown University.

Introduction by Solas Nua’s Kate Meenan-Waugh

This free event is being co-hosted by NYU DC, and the screening will be facilitated via Zoom.
