When I Leave These Landings

Jonathan Cimmuns

Irish filmmaker Jonathan Cummins has spent eight years working with Irish prisoners as part of the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) “Prison Art Programme”. Emerging from this practice, When I Leave These Landings is the result of a highly intimate dialogue with Irish political prisoners. The films explore the impact of incarceration and extreme ideological conviction on the self through the conflicting demands of paramilitary, prison, family and personal life.

The exhibition will be opened by French author and filmmaker, Philippe Claudel.
