Dublin International Film Festival Screening: The Ordinaries

Join us for a Special Screening The Ordinaries, which comes to Riverbank Arts Centre as part of Dublin International Film Festival, in association with access>CINEMA, and with the support of the Arts Council.

Have you ever felt like a supporting character in your own life? Sophie Linnenbaum’s daring and original film imagines what it would be like if you really were one.

It tells of Paula (Fine Sendel) – a supporting character in a movie – who dreams of having her own storyline by attending Main Character School and becoming a lead. In a repressive three class-society, Paula is about to face the most important test of her life: she has to prove she deserves to be a Lead. She is at the top of her class at the Main Character School – but so far has failed in generating great emotional music. In search of a solution, she finds herself in the abyss of the cinematic world, on the fringes of the storyline and lost amongst the Outtakes.

A clever satire about identity and exclusion, The Ordinaries sees a woman battling these themes playfully in a filmic meta world.

Directed by Sophie Linnenbaum | 120 mins |  Cert 12A

The Ordinaries will be screened at Riverbank Arts Centre on Monday 27 February at 8pm. Book tickets HERE.
