We are delighted to have been notified of the film’s selection for this year’s Galway Film Fleadh, taking place in (you guessed it) Galway from June 5-10. We will play in the short documentary section, probably on the morning of Sunday June 10. More news when we have it.
There are 800,000 unmarked graves in Glasnevin Cemetery, Dublin.
This is the story of one….
What would you do if you discovered that an unknown child is buried in your family grave? The Bookbinder’s Daughter is a short film that tells the story of one such discovery: how it happened, what it means, and what to do about it.
The film was made by Gerard Quine, Mark Noonan, Denis Murphy and Marian Caparros, as part of their studies for an MA in Film and Television Studies at Dublin City University, Ireland. The Bookbinder’s Daughter received its premiere in May 2011 at the Fastnet Short Film Festival in Schull, Co. Cork, where it was shortlisted for the Best Documentary prize.
