Screening of 'What We Leave in Our Wake'

A filmic essay on Ireland - with contributions from past and current UCC staff members. The director of the documentary will introduce the film.

The film was screened at the Cork Film Festival 2010 and has been described as: “A filmic essay which unfolds as a series of conversations on Ireland, exploring themes such as emigration, mythology, consumerism, socialism, the place of the Church in Irish life, the central role of land in Irish history, the sense of a civic society, differences in urban and rural Ireland and the local and the universal. Combining images of contemporary Ireland with an evocative blend of archive footage, this searching documentary questions what persists rather than the temporary fluctuations and trends, and talks to some of those uniquely placed to comment on how this country has evolved.” Contributors to the documentary include Joe Lee, Declan Kiberd, Olivia O’Leary and Gearóid Ó Crualaoich. The director, Mr Pat Collins, has kindly agreed to introduce the film and after the screening there will be a short Q+A with the director.
