A group of young housing activists take over the house of ‘The Dead’, where John Houston filmed the iconic film, based on James Joyce’s short story.

Their mission is to highlight the growing housing crisis in Dublin and its detrimental effects.

The solidarity of the group is threatened as other interests emerge, pitting preservation against housing.


The arrival of a celebrity and a politician eager to cash in on the movement, and then the presence of a ghost, increase tensions. All this unnecessary attention has hindered the landlord’s plan to develop the site for a hotel or student accommodation and he will not stop until the property is returned to its rightful owner!


We are donating €1 per ticket to Inner City Helping Homeless, which is a service assisting homeless individuals and families and educating them on how to navigate through homelessness with food, supplies and a listening ear.
