Winner of the Special Mention Award in Documentary Competition at Dublin International Film Festival, Best Documentary Award at Louth International Film Festival, Special Mention and Spirit of IndieCork Award, North Circular is also screening at Bertha Doc House in London as part of the London Irish Film Festival with additional dates scheduled for December 4, 10 and 15.
“resonant, vivid and beautifully shot film” … “What distinguishes North Circular is the overwhelming importance of music: there’s a musical tradition here that is not simply commemorative and static, but vital and evolving, and given a fresh burst of creativity by the emerging status of women in Ireland – the film features a potent contribution from north Dublin singer-songwriter Gemma Dunleavy. A film made with real artistry.”Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
