Premiere of The Price of Desire

Premiere of The Price of Desire

Jameson Dublin International Film Festival

March 19–29, 2015

The Price of Desire, the much anticipated feature film by director Mary McGuckian, explores the amazing life story of Eileen Gray. "More than a movie, more of a movement," explains McGuckian, the film shares the controversial story of how Le Corbusier effaced and defaced Eileen Gray's moral right to be recognized as the author of her work and alludes to a larger universal female experience while cinematically evoking the essential aesthetic of Eileen Gray. Starring Orla Brady as Eileen Gray and featuring Francesco Scianna and Vincent Perez, with Alanis MOrrissette and Dominique Pinon, The Price of Desire will premiere at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival in March 2015.
