Ireland


Abhar Machnaimh
Colman Doyle has photographed Ireland for over 50 years, and provided a body of work that is iconic, compelling, extraordinary in scope… and forms an invaluable portrait of a changing Ireland through the second half of the 20th century. This film follows him as he returns to photograph West Kerry, where he reconnects with his earliest work as a photographer. (2006, 52 mins)
Na Deoraithe
A story about migrant workers past and present. Na Deoraithe uses narration from Donal Macamlaigh’s 1960’s publication ‘Diallann Deorat’. Alongside the stories of three migrant workers in Ireland today: Ludmila from Russia, Wang from China and Berhane from Eritrea. (2006, 26mins)
Cumann a Ghaire
In 2004, Dr Madan Kataria, an Indian laughter guru (founder of the international laughter club movement) came to Ireland to set up the country’s first laughter club. He held a weekend retreat in a remote corner of County Donegal which was attended by two middle-aged Irish-speaking locals Hugh Devenney and Stephen O Donnell. This documentary gives a hilarious and fascinating insight into gurus, their followers and what happens when they crash headlong into rural Ireland. (2006, 26mins)
