A short summary 

MA Filmmaking Dissertation Film

We are raising money for the production of a surreal family drama film.

Who are We?

We are a team of young filmmakers passionate about storytelling!

OUR story

This story is inspired by the ancient tradition of Irish wakes. Many themes weave our narrative together; What happens when the family patriarch dies? How can death reconnect broken bonds? Where does your soul go if you die a long way from your motherland? 

This film takes place in the moment immediately after death, when the soul is still in the body.
