Irish filmmaker PadraigTrehy is trying to complete his experimental film Shem the Penman Sings Again. The film, which Trehy has been working on for four years, is “about James Joyce and his love of music and song as exemplified in his relationship with the great Irish tenor John McCormack.” The film focuses on Joyce’s memories of singing with McCormack in 1904, but also highlights the intersections between Joyce’s work and music throughout his life. In addition, Trehy has shot the film to evoke the early twentieth-century cinematic style that so enthralled Joyce. The website features more information about the film, still images, a teaser trailer, and other footage. It also includes a link to a crowd funding page where you can view a video of Trehy speaking about the project as well as more information about the film’s progress and plans for completion.
