Finnegans Wake

2014 was the 75th anniversary of the publication of James Joyce’s book Finnegans Wake. Joyce was a Dubliner and is internationally recognised as one of the world’s greatest writers.

As a tribute to him, and Finnegans Wake, the seven UNESCO Cities of Literature each undertook one of the short ‘stories’ from the book and filmed them. The short films are available individually and also as one film.
