Town of Strangers

Directed by Treasa O Brien

“A sensitive and engaging depiction of human connection, with all its fragilities, and, in doing so, beautifully reflects on contemporary rural Ireland” Loretta Goff, Film Ireland Magazine

Featuring a cast of migrant workers, hippies, Travellers, blow-ins and newly arrived refugees, we are ushered into the private worlds of people living between two cultures, sharing their desires of longing and belonging.
Town of Strangers is a ‘hybrid’ feature film using auditions, observational documentary and magical realist dream scenes.  It is a documentary of the imagination, with many scenes transcending the genres of documentary and fiction, going deep into the experience of migration and home through cinematic methods.  
Director Treasa O’Brien worked closely with the film’s participants to create these scenes and with Joshua Oppenheimer (Dir. The Act of Killing), the executive producer and creative advisor to the film in their conception.
