Muide Ã‰ire / We are Ireland| 1hr : 19mins
Director: Cathal Watters | Producer: Rachel Lysaght
Focus Years: 2011 | Country: Ireland
"Muide Ã‰ire" is a documentary film on the history of Ireland onscreen. From horse drawn carriages of yesteryear to the latest summer blockbuster, the documentary takes an intimate look at TV and film making as a visual expression of Irish culture, celebrating contemporary filmmakers, in both the Irish and English language.
From the glamor of red carpet interviews to behind-the-scenes 5am starts, "Muide Ã‰ire' invites the viewer into a world where art and industry exist in delicate balance. The heart of our investigation is onscreen representations of Ireland: how the Irish have been viewed abroad and how we represent ourselves.
