Pathways: Irish Routes to the Art of the Matter

Special screening of the 2018 St. Patrick’s Festival Film Commission introduced by filmmaker Donal Dineen and special guests.

The amount of great writers, actors and artists Ireland has produced is disproportionate to its size and population. We have an unassailable reputation in this regard. The innate triggers that beget all this creativity are the starting point for this series of interviews with leading practitioners in their field. By tracing different artistic journeys back to their roots we hope to uncover some home truths about where and when the seeds were sown. The experiences shared by our featured contributors show how different these routes can be.  The common thread is that they all began here. Where they ended up and every step taken in between is equally fascinating.

All of our chosen contributors either live or work primarily abroad. The personal stories of eminent storytellers are of great value. There are lessons to be learned.
The pathways are manifold.

Filmed in Dublin, Kerry, Belfast, London, Malmo, New York and Los Angeles
