Forty Foot

A seven minute version of this film was made as part of the International Documentary Challenge. Completed in four days and co-directed with Letica Agudo and Paul McGrath of Whackala, this charming short film looks at the history of the Forty Foot bathing area, and introduces us to some

8 Things to Remember

Not your typical anoraks, the planespotters Tim, Ed and Conor have become adept at monitoring and tracking the US military flights that land and refuel at Shannon Airport in neutral Ireland. Since early 2003 the lads have continued to photograph troops in desert fatigues hanging out in the arrivals hall and they have documented thousands of US military flights enroute or returning from active service in Iraq and Afghanistan. More recently they have recorded sightings of small planes linked with the US governments secretive policy of Extraordinary Rendition. Is the next stop for these unmarked charter planes Guantánamo Bay?
