Willie Doherty and Seamus McGarvey in Conversation

  • 60 mins

Explore the stunning work of Northern Irish photographer and film artist Willie Doherty, a two-time Turner Prize nominee.

In association with Edinburgh's Fruitmarket Gallery, we present an examination of Willie Doherty's film work, often created in collaboration with Oscar®-nominated cinematographer and EIFF patron Seamus McGarvey. A screening of Willie's film Ghost Story will be followed by an onstage discussion of Doherty's working practice and the meanings inherent in his poetic, quietly provcative work, which circles the emotional and cultural legacy of the Troubles.
