Cinema Day 2017: Ghost World at Queen’s University, Belfast

28 August

As part of #CinemaDay17, the Naughton Gallery in collaboration with Us Folk, presents a special screening of Ghost World (112mins, dir. Terry Zwigoff, 2001). The film has been selected by illustrator Jacky Sheridan, who has created a limited edition poster to mark the screening, bringing her own style to a film that has influenced her practice.

Based on the cult comic book by Daniel Clowes, Ghost World tells the story of Enid and Rebecca, teenage friends facing the unwelcome prospect of adulthood and the uncertain future of their complicated relationship. The film will be introduced by Jacky Sheridan, in conversation with the Naughton Gallery’s Ben Crothers.

Limited edition posters are free to all attendees, and donations are welcome. All proceeds will go to the Women’s TEC, supporting training and resources for women to work in non-traditional sectors.
Please RSVP to art@qub.ac.uk.
