Bloomsday Film Screening: 'How to Make a Magic Carpet'
How to Make a Magic Carpet began with the discovery of Gustav Davidson's book, A Dictionary of Angels. What an amazing fantasy-creation angels are. At the back of the book is a grimoire and "Spell for the Manufacture and Use of a Magic Carpet." Detailed instructions. Irresistible. I presume the ritual itself is the magic, whether or not there is flight. In the film there is flight, thanks to the wonderful work of Bernie Masterson, the artist. Beautiful performances from Tara Faughnan, Isabella Oberländer and Andrew Heney. Watch online here.
