Storyline

This commemorative, immersive black and white film based on Don Nigro's play takes us back into the shooting of Irish literary lion Samuel Beckett's one and only film made in July of 1964, fifty years ago this year... the odd, now iconic 'FILM,' which was a cinematic treatment of the philosophic principle of George Lord Berkeley that to be is to be perceived ('esse est percipi'). It featured silent film star Buster Keaton trying to escape perception, even from himself, in one of his very last but most memorable roles. Some comedy, some drama, some history, some biography and a lot of imaginative filmmaking. Written by Anonymous
