Past Perfect

DATE: 2021

DIRECTOR: Julia Dogra-Brazell

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: UK

OVERVIEW: With questions, elaboration and asides reminiscent of an exchange found in reiterative traditions of oral storytelling, one man bears witness to a series of seemingly unconnected relations and events. The screenplay, adapted from James Joyce’s ‘Ulysses’ and Angela Carter’s ‘Nights at the Circus’, relates to marginalia and markings the filmmaker found in Carter’s own copy of Joyce’s text.
