The Science of Ghosts

1h 19m Documentary, Music 2018

Director Niall McCann’s playful film blends factual and fanciful elements to reflect upon the character of talented Irish musician Adrian Crowley. While being interviewed by a film crew for his latest album, an interruption causes Adrian to ponder – what would a film about his life be like? Could it ever really reflect who he is?

His imagination takes him – and the audience – on a journey as he becomes a ghost visiting his own life, past and future. What emerges is a humorous and original take on the power of storytelling, generously punctuated by Crowley’s music.
