Q&A with director Sinéad O'Shea, moderated by Catríona Palmer, journalist and author.

Through the stories of everyday citizens resisting the status quo, filmmaker and journalist Sinéad O'Shea's powerful documentary confronts Ireland's recent history of brutality against children and women, from corporal punishment to state-sanctioned mother and baby homes. O'Shea returns to her hometown in rural Ireland to explore the control the Catholic church held there until recent years and uncovers the gentle but extraordinary figures who chose to resist. This is a portrait of genuine bravery, hope and love. (Note adapted from Dogwoof Films.) Winner, Best Documentary, 2022 Hamptons International Film Festival.
