16th November: Squarebear Film Online Premiere

ONLINE PREMIERE – Freedom & the Sesh: A Squarebear Joint

Thursday 30th November at 7pm

In 2023, Féile approached acclaimed artist Squarebear to take part in a documentary film with Féile’s Ruairi Campbell. The result was ‘Freedom & the Sesh: A Squarebear Joint”, a film that follows Squarebear’s day to day habits and the creative contributions that come from that.

Squarebear said of the documentary:

‘I found the practice challenging and a test of the intellectual validity of my work as opposed to it somewhat being a source of humour solely. In committing to this documentary I have found new questions I must answer myself because of it, as I transition from sesh culture into adulthood and also develop my voice as an artist beyond that. I hope the viewer can find a richer understanding of why I do what I do and getting an insight into the life I lead in my pursuit for art, while also giving an insight into my life as a Bogsider who to some degree has beaten those cultural labels.’

The film will be premiering online on ours & Square’s YouTube channel at 7pm on Thursday 30th November:
