Abstract:

In this haunting documentary, the celebrated Irish poet Cathal O'Searcaigh invites his greatest fan Neasa di Chandin to Nepal. And so a journey begins which neither will ever forget. But what Neasa expected to be the trip of a lifetime soon turns into a disquieting and idol-smashing experience. "This was not the story I wanted to tell," says Neasa, who directed the film, and viewers feel her disappointment as Cathal's behavior with young men is revealed. Provocative in both content and technique, this finely crafted documentary is not only a portrait of a fallen idol - it is also a glimpse into the murky world of sex tourism.
