A documentary on the life and work of one of Ireland’s greatest prose writers Aidan Higgins (1927 – 2015). The film traces his extraordinary life from his birthplace in Celbridge, his years in London, Berlin, and Kinsale; his triumphs and failures; his travels in quest of what he termed “a trade recondite as Falconry”, the dedicated writer’s life. Director Neil Donnelly will attend the screening.

Where Would You Like The Bullet?

A Television Documentary on Celbridge-born writer Aidan Higgins.

“A short promo for the upcoming documentary about Celbridge born author Aidan Higgins. This stylised documentary by Neil Donnnelly, looks at the work and life of the critically acclaimed writer whose novels, short stories and radio plays saw him compared to Joyce, Beckett and Flann O; Brien.

His books ‘Langrishe go Down’, ‘Balcony of Europe’, ‘Lions of the Grunewald’ and many others still sell to a growing group of dedicated readers and his cinematic tone and modernist style suggest that now, two years after his death, Aidan Higgins is a man whose time has finally come.”
