Synopsis:
"I Am Belfast" sees celebrated filmmaker, writer and curator Mark Cousins cast his painterly eye on his home town, the port city Belfast. Beautifully shot by Christopher Doyle (In the Mood for Love, Rabbit-Proof Fence) and with a powerful soundtrack by the great Northern Irish DJ and composer David Holmes (Ocean's Eleven,'71, Hunger), Cousins' film takes viewers on an emotional journey through the complex and sometimes tragic history of the Northern Irish capital, embodied as a 10,000 year-old woman, compellingly portrayed by Helena Bereen (Hunger, Mo).
Interspersing archive material (often detailing the horrors of the Troubles) and newly-filmed footage, 'I Am Belfast' is an impassioned and politically engaged love letter to Cousins' hometown.

Unexpected - I Am Belfast review by EC

Spoiler Alert

As a resident of Northern Ireland I was drawn to this film by its title. It wasn't at all what I expected but once I got used to the style I found it very interesting. The photography was particularly good.
