A Vision: A Life of WB Yeats

Presented by Irish Arts Center and Irish Film Institute

Tuesday, October 6 | 7 pm

Directed by Alan Gilsenan
2015, PG13

We continue to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of W.B. Yeats (on June 13, 1865) with A Vision: A Life of W.B. Yeats, a biographical and experimental “film poem” from director Alan Gilsenan (last here with Queen of Paraguay).

Using solely the words of Yeats, the film takes the viewer on a cinematic journey into his extraordinary imagination. Gilsenan says, “Beyond the poet’s popular profile and his cultural tourist cachet, little is really known of his complex life, despite having articulated it so completely and so creatively. In so many ways, Yeats dreamt up his life. He fashioned his own majestic screenplay and we are – endlessly – the beneficiaries.”
