The Science of Ghosts (2018)

  • Documentary, Music
  • 1h 19m

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.
