The Peculiar Sensation of Being Pat Ingoldsby
Seamus Murphy’s curious camera roams the deep terrain of cult Irish writer Pat Ingoldsby’s unique world. Ingoldsby’s poems and candid anecdotes bear witness to a visceral relationship with his beloved Dublin, fellow Dubliners and anything that catches his interest. He joyfully slices through artifice and pomposity with the steel of Jonathan Swift and the imagination of Flann O’Brien. Personal challenges, a sensitive humanity and a lifetime of being a maverick have taught him to reach beyond reality and avenge the banal with absurd magic. It heals him as it can us.
