Documentary

After much success with the Irish audience, Alex Fegan’s award-winning documentary ‘Older Than Ireland’ is out now on DVD.

The film was produced by Garry Walsh for Snackbox Films, funded by the Irish Film Board and is distributed by Element Pictures Distribution. Receiving very positive reviews and the Best Documentary Award winner at the Galway Film Fleadh, ‘Older Than Ireland’ has played in over 35 cinemas and venues since its cinema debut, and after taking over €155k at the Irish box office it continues to play strong into week eight of release.

‘Older Than Ireland’ features thirty men and women aged 100 years and over. The film 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 centenarians have lived through it all. Having witnessed a century of immense social, political and technological change each centenarian has a unique perspective on life and its true meaning.

‘Older Than Ireland’ is available in HMV, Xtra-vision, Tesco, Supervalu, Golden Discs, Tower Records, Eason and Heatons, or order a copy online from ElementPictures.ie and Amazon. On Demand viewing can be found on iTunes and Volta.ie.
