The Ulysses Project

1h 31m Drama, Experimental, Irish Film, F-Rated 2022

A modern, non-traditional re-telling of Ulysses, told rapidly by a succession of over 75 actors who recreate the characters encountered by Leopold Bloom on June 16th, 1904. The film attempts to maintain the rhythm of the novel’s stream of consciousness within the constraints of a pandemic vernacular – shot entirely during the first lockdown, actors were required to film themselves in close-up while being directed via WhatsApp. The resulting compendium of intimate, minutely nuanced performances is, surprisingly, deeply cinematic and as provocative as the book on which it is based. The cast includes John Turturro, Aidan Gillen, Olwen Fouéré, Shane MacGowan, Paula Meehan and Barry Ward.
