What We Leave in Our Wake is 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 and the sense of a civic society. Combining images of
contemporary Ireland with an evocative blend of archive, What We Leave in
Our Wake 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.
Featuring contributions from Joe Lee, Patrick O’
Connor, Leila Doolan, Iain McGilchrist, Peter McVerry, Declan Kiberd, Desmond
Fennell and Olivia O’Leary and archive recordings of John McGahern and John
Moriarty among others.
