‘Don’t Go Where I Can’t Find You’ is a queer love story that centers on a composer who is haunted by the memory of her deceased lover. Ríoghnach Ní Ghríoghair’s latest short sees her protagonist wrestle with grief and lingering remorse. She sets out to write a suite of music to top into the redemptive power of art but finds her grip on reality becoming more tenuous with each new movement.
‘Don’t Go Where I Can’t Find You’ is having its Dublin premiere on Friday the 25th of February at 6.30pm at the Dublin International Film Festival in the Odeon Point Square, DIFF.
