Irish Eye on Hollywood:
Documentaries to Watch

Together in Pieces (Foxwall Films)

By Tom Deignan, Contributor
April / May 2016

Speaking of Derry, filmmakers from there debuted a documentary about Northern Ireland at the recent Capital Irish Film Festival in Washington D.C. Together in Pieces, a film by David Dryden and Eileen Walsh, looks closely at the North’s famed graffiti and murals as a symbol of the region’s difficult past and potentially hopeful future. The film’s title refers to slang for a masterpiece. Another unique documentary to keep an eye out for is Rednecks + Culchies. Mayo native Tony Monaghan explores the unlikely connections between Irish immigrants and the mid-western white working class he knows so well after living in St. Louis for many years. Rednecks + Culchies is making the rounds at festivals and other venues and will be available on DVD in April. ♦
