PREVIEW Town of Strangers + Q&A
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Two people in casual clothing tend to a grey horse against a brickwall. Off the side is an old telephone box, decorated by a cheeky painting of a grandma taking a call
Town of Strangers, dir. Treasa O’Brien, Ireland 2021, 82 min., English

They say there are only two stories worth telling: a person goes on a journey or a stranger comes to town. This film is about a stranger who comes to make a film in the small town of Gort in the West of Ireland, and the people she meets when she holds auditions. Together, they go on a cinematic journey to explore their waking and dreaming lives. Featuring a cast of migrant workers, hippies, Travellers, blow-ins and newly arrived refugees, we are ushered into the private worlds of people living between two cultures, sharing their desires of longing and belonging.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Treasa O’Brien, hosted by film director Joe Lawlor.
