About The Film

Irish Folk Furniture

Directed by Tony Donoghue

An animated documentary about repair and recycling in rural Ireland. In rural Ireland old hand painted furniture is often associated with hard times, with poverty and with a time many would rather forget. Because of this association, much of the country's furniture heritage lies abandoned in barns and sheds. In the making of this film 16 pieces of abandoned folk furniture were restored and returned back into daily use. This film was shot in a green and environmentally friendly way using local craftspeople, local narrators and inexpensive secondhand equipment. Only natural light was used to shoot this film. Short Film Jury Award Winner (Animation) at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
