New York Our Time - screened in association with Ballina Film Club

About this event

When Irish film artist Vivienne Dick arrived in New York’s run-down Lower East side in the late 1970s, she was deeply inspired by the vibrant community of avant-garde musicians, makers and artists who lived there.

In this, her much anticipated first feature film, Dick revisits old haunts and reconnects with a number of friends (among them Cynthia Sley, Nan Goldin and Lydia Lunch), many of whom still manage to work as artists in the city, despite sky-high rents and gentrification.

Dick’s own previously-unseen Super 8 captures the gritty, post-punk era while the intimate present-day sequences (filmed by her friend, cinematographer Declan Quinn) celebrate the importance of friendship, particularly women’s friendship, community and memory.

Funded under the Arts Council’s Reel Art Scheme.

Presented by Ballina Fringe Festival in conjunction with Ballina Film Club.

Ballina Fringe Festival returns from 9th – 17th October 2021
