ReJoyce! The Centennial of ‘ULYSSES’
How the novel that is widely considered the greatest work of modern fiction was created and the toll it took on James Joyce’s family.
The 1922 publication of James Joyce’s Ulysses stirred controversy and revolutionized literature. Using theatrical readings, archival footage, and visits to the book’s Dublin locations, this playful literary doc explores the saga of Joyce’s modernist masterpiece, from the autobiographical roots to the obscenity trial of its original publishers to its enduring legacy. Get warmed up for Bloomsday and join us to celebrate the novel’s centennial anniversary.
Another case of everything, everywhere, all at once…..literature, history, paternity, infidelity, maternity, obscenity, nationalism, Semitism, anti-Semitism, and a thousand laughs.
Join us on Thursday, June 16th for a post-screening BLOOMSDAY celebration….. bring your songs, stories, reminisces, reading, and performances.
