Solas Nua's CIFF@Home with NYU Washington, DC present, "Phantom Islands." "Phantom Islands" is an experimental film directed by Rouzbeh Rashidi that exists at the boundary of documentary and fiction. It follows a couple adrift and disoriented in the stunning landscape of Ireland’s islands. This deliberately melodramatic romance is constantly questioned by a provocative cinematic approach that ultimately results in a hypnotic and visceral inquiry into the very possibility of documentary objectivity.
Hand-picked by Solas Nua's Capital Irish Film Festival, in partnership with NYU Washington DC, CIFF@Home is a bi-monthly, curated series of Irish film. Selected for you to watch from the comfort of your own home, registration will give you access to an on-demand film link to view any time between now and Nov 10., as well as a live interactive Q&A that will be streamed via Zoom Webinar after you have watched the film on your own schedule.
