Arena is proud to present Bob Dylan’s Trouble No More. In 1979, Dylan declared to the world that he had become a born-again Christian. His fans were baffled and not for the first time. He toured relentlessly, performing only songs that expressed his Christian message. One of the gigs was filmed but never shown. Forty years later, the film was brought out of the vaults. There was a suggestion that it might merit a documentary. Dylan objected and recommended the commissioning of sermons to be preached between the songs instead. New York writer, Luc Sante was commissioned to compose them; Oscar nominated Michael Shannon was cast as the preacher and Jennifer LeBeau was invited to direct. The result is a gospel service—Dylan style. Once again, he’s come up with something that isn’t like anything else; but Dylan just isn’t like anyone else.

Director/Writer: Pat Collins
Starring: Michael O’Chonfhlaola, Macdara Ó Fátharta, Jaren Cerf
Acclaimed filmmaker Pat Collins brings the dramatic life story of legendary seannós singer Joe Heaney to the screen in The Song of Granite, an audacious exploration of the man and his music. With an approach that marries traditional narrative episodes with documentary footage, the film will celebrate the music Joe Heaney created while painting an unflinching portrait of Heaney, the man.
“Song of Granite had the effect of making me weep for a deep part of our culture that I barely know. There can be no higher praise. An absolute masterpiece.” – Jason Coyle, Scannain
“The film’s monochromatic images are so beautiful they’re almost as soul-nourishing as the transporting vocals and otherworldly reels the soundtrack envelopes us in” Bob Strauss – Los Angelas Daily News
