Short Irish Films in Tribeca Film Festival


How They’re Irish:  The filmmakers Domhnall Gleeson, Peter McDonald and Thomas Hefferon are of course, but I can’t help noticing that each of these seems to emphasize sin or crime and atonement or redemption (even though only Noreen by Gleeson lists “religion” on the TFF website.  Hmm.  Guilt as the Irish condition?

Met Thomas Hefferon at the reception for the Irish films at the Consul’s Residence Thursday night and look forward to having him on the podcast.  He says his films are much better understood in America than at home– spiritually a New Yorker!
