IRELAND ON SUNDAY

Director: DAWN SCIBILIA

U.S.A. • 2006 • COLOUR/BLACK AND WHITE • DIGITAL VIDEO • 70 MIN


Ireland on Sunday, the exciting monthly showcase for new Irish fiction and documentary films, continues with Home, a poetic and thought-provoking feature-length documentary written by Alan Cooke and directed by Dawn Scibilia. Cooke, a young dublin actor and writer, reflects on his recent arrival in new York City, exploring such universal themes as nostalgia, the journey and the concept of home. The film features a remarkable series of interviews with quintessential new Yorkers — Woody Allen, Susan Sarandon, Alfred Molina, Fran Liebowitz, Rosie Perez, Colin Quinn — and there are also contributions from such new York-irish luminaries as Liam neeson and Frank McCourt. Directing her first feature, new York university Film School graduate Scibilia turns the film into an impeccably shot love letter to the thriving metropolis. Jim Sheridan, who has himself lived and filmed in the city, said that Home ‘beautifully captures the irish immigrant’s journey through the myth and mystery of new York.’ the screening will be followed by a Q&A with writer and co-producer Alan Cooke.
