30 second trailer from short film (5min 45sec)
Getting smacked in the face with dirt – a literal and symbolic action – in both senses the land is blinding. This film is a montage of: family footage, political speech, travel, a scene from an old movie; a mixture of fact, recollection and fiction, which forms a sense of what it means to belong to some place, to have a homeland. Using a personal account of national identity (first generation Irish-American) the film reveals the failings of nationalism and the habitual thoughts our nationhood engrains within us that must be unsettled to be understood.
