New Events at DCA

It’s also your last chance to see Looking For Eric at DCA, where devoted fan Eric Bishop seeks the help of his hero, Eric Cantona, in confronting his past. This Thursday sees the screening of the first part of the Red Riding trilogy as part of the Dundee Literary Festival – don’t miss author David Peace’s introduction to the film.

Everlasting Moments

Everlasting Moments is the true story ordinary housewife, Maria Larrson, whose creative potential was realised by the power of photography. Struggling to care for her large family and her philandering, abusive, alcoholic dockworker husband, Maria decides to pawn an old unused camera she won in a lottery. The owner of a local camera shop refuses and insists instead that she try it. Maria takes his advice and the effect is immediate - she is hooked on the power of photography. Bathed in natural light, Everlasting Moments is a tender contemplative story of hope and a tribute to an extraordinary woman and the transformative power of artistic expression.


Helen - who has lived in institutions all her life, is parentless, and has never been close to anyone - agrees to play the part of a missing girl in a police reconstruction. Gradually, carefully, she begins to immerse herself in the role and into the lost girl’s life. Visually and aurally arresting, Helen has an atmosphere thick with tension.The colour yellow never seemed so haunting.

Red Riding 1974

In collaboration with the Dundee Literary Festival, DCA is delighted to be celebrating contemporary screen adaptations with these rare screenings of the trilogy Red Riding, David Peace’s riveting quartet about a region traumatised by the Yorkshire Ripper murders. David Peace will be at DCA for this screening to introduce the film.
