Older Than Ireland is a landmark feature documentary that explores what it means to have lived one hundred years in Ireland, as seen through the eyes of its oldest citizens.
Featuring thirty men and women, this remarkable group of centenarians, all born before 1916, are the last generation to have borne witness to Ireland’s bloody transition from a newly formed fledging republic through to its development into a mature European state.
These centenarians are our living history and it is through their wit, wisdom and philosophy that the film explores the more universal themes of life. From youth to true love, from loss to regrets, from the meaning of life to the existence of a life hereafter - the centenarians have an opinion on it all. Older Than Ireland is a film that pays homage to this unique group of remarkable individuals.
“The film swells with indecent amounts of poignancy, wisdom and irreverent humour”, The Irish Times.
“Older Than Ireland is a heartfelt piece of work, sensitively filmed and beautifully shot.”, Hotpress
