LOVE'S BITTER MYSTERY









THE YEAR THAT MADE JAMES JOYCE


Screenplay by Steve Carey 

Directed by Carly Wilding

Bloomsday in Melbourne proudly presents a feature length film,

set in Paris and Dublin in 1903-4. How does a young nobody

become the most lionized author of the twentieth century?

Filmed in the stately setting of the spookily atmospheric

Victorian mansion Villa Alba, our brand new play features

love, death, sex and violence…

and the two powerful women who made James Joyce.
