At 20:00, Centrum invited guests to the premiere of the Super8 film, “The Interval”, by Úna Quigley. The visual script was informed by an excerpt from Iris Murdoch’s 1978 novel, “The Sea the Sea”, in which the protagonist’s equilibrium is disrupted by an unbearable vision in the sea. He describes the interval of time needed to process his vision and questions the possibility of his eyes projecting images onto reality. This work was grant-aided by Ealain and Gaeltachta Teo.
