The film equivalent of a portrait gallery, Tom Burke and Shane Hogan’s The Liberties is a series of twelve beautifully crafted short films, each encapsulating a different aspect of this famous Dublin inner-city community, which one Oscar-winning inhabitant wouldn’t trade for anyplace else in the world. The vibrancy of the streets, the humour of the inhabitants and the skills of the traders and craftspeople are all captured here.
