By Accident, a film by Norris Davidson, is one of few independent films produced in the early years of the Irish state, and one of the first films to emerge from the group Irish Amateur Films. Only an estimated one third of the film remains intact, obscuring the film’s narrative, dark and psychological elements, but allowing its more innovative qualities – stark, disjunctive editing, poetic juxtapositions and freewheeling camerawork – to take centre stage.
