Tim Booth’s playful animation is both a reflection on Joyce’s struggle with the writing of Ulysses (which he declares to be “a real bollix of a buk”), and a whistle-stop tour through the book itself.  It offers a potted outline and uses hand-drawn animation to conjure the fevered imaginings of Leopold Bloom and the characters he encounters as he wanders through Dublin and its environs on June 16th, 1904.
