Louis Deacy is an Irish film maker, videographer and photographer.
In 2013 he was commissioned to produce a film which documented the Irish phase of the 'Contemporary Self Portrait Project', a European partner programme between the leading art academies in Finland, Estonia, Sweden, Latvia and Ireland, which focuses on giving individuals, local communities and different European regions ways of expressing identity through self-portraits.
'I Write Soul' (2013) is his candid documentary which sheds light on the undercover world of an active Irish graffiti writer. This film lead to 'Grafféire' (2014), a culturally significant documentary which features exclusive interviews with top Irish graffiti writers; insights by respected commentators; and a soundtrack by leading Irish rappers.
'Síoraí' archives the development of Brendon Deacy's exhibition about James Fintan Lalor which was premiered at the Dunamaise Arts Centre on 17 October 2014 and will be shown at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka in July 2016.
