Home; written & directed by Aoife Kelleher and produced by Rachel Lysaght, is a film about how our lives are shaped by the homes in which we grow up. To what extent are we defined by the homes into which we are born? Our first living space, though we have no say as to what or where it may be, may case a shadow over the rest of our lives.

The End of the Counter directed & written by Laura McGann and produced by Aisling Ahmed, captures the moment in 1965 when grocery shopping in Ireland changed forever. Matt Melia transformed the experience when he put baskets in the hands of Irish housewives and gave them the run of the shop. With the birth of the supermarket, suddenly self control was a vital commodity. View trailer here.
