Ghosts of Dublin
The film series Ghosts of Dublin showcases contemporary actors, writers and activists performing excerpts from works that are foundational to the city’s literary gothic heritage in places of cultural significance.
These films uncover the ghosts and mysteries hidden beneath the city’s streets, and posit how Ireland’s literary past haunts contemporary politics and culture. Historic buildings like Kilmainham Gaol, the Oscar Wilde House and UCD Newman House provide an atmospheric background for these uncanny tales, demonstrating how the past and present collide as modern furnishings, electric boxes, and fire alarms exist in the same spaces as ghouls from nineteenth and twentieth-century Dublin.
Ghosts of Dublin premiered at ‘Living Canvas Goes Gothic’ in collaboration with Dublin City Council’s Bram Stoker Festival 2022, and has been featured on RTÉ.
