    Portrays the day-long Bloomsday celebration, when James Joyce devotees annually recreate and relive, through role-playing and readings, the famous odyssey of Leopold Bloom around Dublin on June 16th, 1904, as immortalized in Joyce's classic novel, Ulysses. Chronicling events from the early-morning gathering at the Joyce Tower in Sandymount to the numerous Dublin landscapes and locations traversed throughout the rest of the day, this video captures the gaiety and humor that pervades the city during this commemorative celebration and also features interviews and other contributions from novelist Antony Burgess, actress Fionnula Flanagan, and Joyce scholar Senator David Norris.
