Darum geht's

“I met a woman. She said that she is Belfast,” states Mark Cousins in this meditative dialogue with the personification of Belfast. This cinematic essay abandons the parameters of classic documentary language, asking us to perceive the film as a mix of reality, dreams, myths, and local storytelling.

I Am Belfast Regie Mark Cousins


A lyrical love letter to his hometown, with ravishing cinematography by the inimitable Christopher Doyle, Belfast captures the spirit of the city as personified by its narrator, a “10,000-year-old woman” who wanders invisibly among the city’s denizens and streets gathering stories—ranging from quotidian moments to tragic tales of The Troubles.

Mark Cousins brings his signature lilting Irish narration to a portrait of the Belfast in which he grew up. The poetic mesh of images, sounds and memory is presided over by a 10,000-year-old woman (played by Helena Bereen) who embodies the city and leads him on a walking tour of its streets. Capturing the capital’s everyday beauty while also acknowledging the darkness that has tinged its history, Cousins pours his palpable affection for this place into this idiosyncratic and personal vision.
