‘Medicated Milk’ je uzbudljiv film zasnovan na malo poznatim činjenicama o životu Lucije Džojs (Lucia Joyce), kćerke proslavljenog irskog pisca Džejmsa Džojsa (James Joyce). Režiserka Onja Stejplton (Áine Stapleton) u centar zbivanja stavlja misterioznu Luciju, koja je zbog mentalne bolesti provela pet godina zaključana i isključena iz svakodnevnog života.

Frustrirana uobičajenim prikazom Lucije kao lude kćerke jednog genija, Stejplton je prikupila njene preostale radove i ponovo proučila njenu priču. Zasnivajući se na Lucijinim rečima i dnevnicima, autorka je, uz pomoć Hose Migel Himenesa (Jose Miguel Jimenez) ponudila nov i svež pristup životu Lucije Džojs.

Uz moćnu muziku Somadrona, umetnici su spojili izuzetne plesne sekvence sa neverovatnom podvodnom kinematografijom kako bi izrazili gubitak, traumu i marginalizaciju koju je preživela Lucija Džojs.

Kroz ovaj film Stejplton je dala glas i život ženi kako bi doprinela tome da se ne bi ponavljale greške prošlosti kao i da način na koji je tretirana u prošlosti više niko ne iskusi u budućnosti.

Onja Stejplton će lično predstaviti film i odgovarati na pitanja posle projekcije.

‘Medicated Milk’ is a captivating movie based on the little known life of Lucia Joyce, daughter of the celebrated Irish writer James Joyce. Director Áine Stapleton highlights the mysterious Lucia who was locked away from the public eye for half a decade due to mental illness.

Frustrated by the portrayal of Lucia as the mad daughter of a genius, Stapleton has gathered what remains of Lucia’s writings and re-examined her story. Working from Lucia’s own words and diaries, Stapleton presents a new and fresh approach to Lucia Joyce’s life with the aid of Jose Miguel Jimenez.

Alongside a powerful score from Somadrone, the artists have fused stunning dance sequences with breathtaking underwater cinematography along with highlighting the loss, trauma, and marginalization suffered by Lucia Joyce.

‘Medicated Milk’ sees Stapleton giving voice and life to a woman in order to ensure that mistakes and the treatment of a woman from the past aren’t committed and felt again by those of the future.

Áine Stapleton will present Medicated
Milk in person this year at BIF, and take questions after the screening.
