Episode Four features a new collaboration from two Limerick artists, rapper and poet Denise Chaila and filmmaker Brian Cross (B+). Their piece, Energy: A Visual Mixtape is a short film like no other, at just 15 minutes long, it contains a multitude. The film eulogizes local Limerick spaces including Ardnacrusha Power Station, Mount Trenchard House and People’s Park, montaging archival and contemporary footage to form visual couplets that marry diasporic histories, racial discrimination and political ideologies, magic and music. The beauty of the music and mesmerizing effect of the montage doesn’t mask the magnitude of these topical investigations but rather helps to find new ways to highlight and accentuate them.
