Older than Ireland; the beauty and wisdom of age
The most beautiful documentary, Older than Ireland, opens in cinemas this Friday – I dare you not to die with how wonderful it is!
Older Than Ireland, poignantly celebrates old age and tells the story of a hundred years of a life as seen through the eyes of thirty Irish men and women, all aged 100 or over…
It’s a very sweet, funny, touching (and at times, heartbreaking) film which explores each person’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, the film really gets to grips with life and its true meaning.
From the oldest Irish person ever on record, 113-year-old Kathleen Snavely to Ireland’s oldest man, 108-year-old Luke Dolan, the thirty old timers from all walks of life tell their extraordinary stories.
