Lipservice

Director: Paul Mercier


The “oral Irish”, a compulsory state exam in the Irish language is satirised in this short from Paul Mercier. Sean McGinley plays the examiner who encounters the exam’s absurdities, as he tests students whose talent in the language ranges from passable to non-existent in this Irish language. His patience is tested until he finally encounters a troubled young man with a more impressive grasp of the language. [No subtitles]
