An exhibition – ‘Introducing Brian’ – opens tomorrow (Friday) night at the Millennium Court in William Street and will run until May 30. The reception tomorrow night is at 7pm.
‘Introducing Brian’ is a film by Nicholas Keogh based on stories by Brian Brown. This is the second time that Keogh has worked with Belfast based actor Brian Brown, previously collaborating with him in critically acclaimed A Removal’s Job (2013), chosen by Dylan Cave (BFI) as one of the standout films at the Encounters Film Festival.
It is a blend of wildlife documentary, alleyway travelogue, sitcom, and drama, based on stories by Brian Brown. At its heart Introducing Brian celebrates storytelling. These stories are built on dark foundations adding pathos to moments of humour and poignancy to the philosophical and positive attitude of the central character.
The exhibition is supported by funding from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. Deirdre Robb, Visual Arts Officer, commented; “The Arts Council is pleased to support the Millennium Court Arts Centre in showcasing this impressive film exhibition created by local talents Nicholas Keogh and Brian Brown.”
