Pat Murphy In Conversation

Thurs 15 / 18:00 / Gate 1

‘I was influenced by Godard and Brecht. But, more than that, with Maeve, anytime I sat down and tried to create a straightforward film with a beginning, middle and end, it just wouldn’t work.’ Pat Murphy

Following a special screening of Maeve, Pat Murphy – Film Artist in Residence at UCC and one of Ireland’s most radical filmmakers – talks to Vanessa Gildea of Women in Film & TV Ireland about her career.

Pat Murphy, Film Artist in Residence (Screenwriter) at UCC 2018/19, is supported by the Arts Council.
