I AM HERE: David Holmes in conversation with Mark Kermode
18:45 Tue 13 Jan 2015
This afternoon we’re excited to present the UK premiere of David Holmes’ directorial debut, I AM HERE, starring Edward Hogg & Liam Cunningham, and shot by Christopher Doyle (IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE). A surreal dream-like short about a man who wakes to find himself stranded in a strange new world, I AM HERE is the latest development in Holmes’s eclectic career.
Belfast born David Holmes began DJ-ing from the age of 15, releasing his own music and mixes from 1995 and forming The Free Association in 2002, mixing northern soul and psychedelic funk, and producing work for U2, Doves, Manic Street Preachers and Primal Scream. In 1998 he was commissioned to create the soundtrack for Steven Soderburgh’s Out of Sight, and has since worked with Soderburgh on the Oceans film series and Haywire (2012), as well as Steve McQueen’s Hunger, and 2014’s massively critically acclaimed ’71.
David Holmes and film critic Mark Kermode will take the stage following the screening, to discuss inspirations from the world of film and music.
