Directed by Irishman Rex Ingram, the first major Irish film director and once described as “the world’s greatest director”, this rare screening of the 1921 American silent epic war film features a new score by renowned composers Matthew Nolan and Barry Adamson which they will perform live on the night accompanied by Seán Mac Erlaine, Adrian Crowley and Kevin Murphy. Barry has previously worked with David Lynch, Oliver Stone and Nick Cave.

As part of the Where We Live programme of events,City on Screen’ is a series of extraordinary film screenings, which examine and question our sense of home, quietly and riotously throwing into question our past, present and future. Each one of these cult films will be introduced by one of the key artists involved. Screenings include funny, downbeat, bleak and beautiful comedy ‘Adam & Paul’, which has achieved cult status among its devoted fans; ‘Seaview’, which documents intensely close conversations with the residents of Mosney Direct Provision Centre, revealing their individual stories, from the epic to the everyday; and ‘Notes On Rave In Dublin’, a roller coaster ride through the birth pangs of dance music in our dirty old town and brilliantly nostalgic look back at 90s Dublin cloaked in a vivid sense of hedonism.

Tickets for ‘Screening and Live Score Performance: The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse’ (€24.00) are available from www.stpatricksfestival.ie
