Melbourne City of Literature will host a special screening of the documentary Deargdhúil: Anatomy of Passion – Poems of Máire Mhac an tSaoi on Monday 1st May in Melbourne with both the filmmaker; Paula Kehoe and Director of Galway City of Film; Declan Gibbons in attendance.

The documentary explores the life, work and sensual poetic imagination of Máire Mhac an tSaoi, one of Ireland’s greatest living poets who helped revolutionise Irish poetry by drawing on a native tradition to express a passionate sensibility and taboo emotions, at a time when women’s voices were on the margins of Irish literature and society.

The screening will take place in the Longplay Bar, 318 St Georges Road, Fitzroy North from 8pm with a drinks reception for invited guests.
