Imagining Ulysses is a visually stunning, resounding, and highly inventive documentary on the writing and reading of Joyce’s epic novel. In 18 different ‘episodes’, each designed in a distinctive style, Imagining Ulysses honours the spirit of Joyce’s Ulysses in an imaginative, accessible way.

This refreshing documentary draws from a rich variety of contemporary and historical material, presenting perspectives on Ulysses, and our engagement with it, which range from parodic to reverential. Narrated by Brenda Flicker, with Patrick Bergin as the voice of Joyce, the film features insightful interviews with Neil Jordan, Roddy Doyle, Martin Amis, Irvine Welsh, Camille Paglia, Edna O’Brien, and Frank McCourt.
