1. Bjӧrk: Biophilia Live
First up is Bjӧrk: Biophilia Live, a live film which captures Björk’s ambitious Biophilia live show will get its Irish debut on Friday October 17th and run for seven nights exclusively. The film was made by Nick Fenton and Peter Strickland and captures the final live show of the tour which takes in songs old and new.
2. Northern Soul
Secondly, Northern Soul is the genre of music that took hold in the clubs and dancehalls of the North of England and it’s also the name and inspiration for Elaine Constantine’s debut film which is centred around the 70s scene. The film starts showing on Friday October 17th at 8.45pm.
3. Jimi: All Is By My Side
Finally, Jimi: All Is By My Side, by John Ridley is a biopic that imagines Hendrix before he was famous and stars Andre 3000 of Outkast. Some of the film was shot in Dublin. It opens on October 24th.
