Featuring 30 men and women, all born before 1916, Older than Ireland is a landmark documentary that tells the story of a hundred years of a life as seen through the eyes of Irish centenarians.

Often funny and at times poignant, the film explores each centenarian’s journey, from their birth at the dawn of Irish independence to their life in modern day Ireland. Award-winning director Alex Fegan brings to Older Than Ireland a relaxed, conversational style that offers a rare insight into the personal lives of these remarkable individuals. These centenarians truly are older than Ireland, they are Ireland’s living history and these are their extraordinary stories.

WINNER: Director’s Choice Award, Boston Irish Film Festival 2016
