OLDER THAN IRELAND

(2015) 78 mins

This landmark documentary tells the story of a hundred years of life as seen through the eyes of thirty Irish centenarians. Directed by Alex Fegan (The Irish Pub), Older Than Ireland explores each centenarian’s journey, from their birth, at the dawn of Irish independence, to their life as a centenarian in modern day Ireland. Reflecting on such key events as the day they got their first pair of shoes, the thrill of their first kiss, from the magic of their wedding day to the tragic loss of their loved ones, these centenarian participants have lived through it all. Having witnessed a century of immense social, political, and technological change, each of these characters has a unique perspective on life and its true meaning.
