The Speed Museum continues their on-going program of classic cinema, documentary, and avant-garde films co-curated by Willie Doherty and Ryan Daly. Cinematic Remembrance: Memory and the Movies explores the nature of memory and its representation in cinema. During the Free First Friday event on Nov. 4th, The Dead directed by John Huston and adapted from the short story by James Joyce will be shown. The film takes place in Dublin in 1904 at an Epiphany party held by two elderly sisters. The story focuses attention on the academic Gabriel Conroy (Donal McCann) and his discovery of his wife Gretta's (Anjelica Huston) memory of a deceased lover.
