There’s been some great feedback about the process and the first screening which took place on Sunday – here’s what some of the participants had to say:

Nicky Gogan, Darklight Festival Director:

Hi everyone, you should all be really proud, i was on the edge of my seat for the whole film.

So beautiful and imaginative and funny and insightful and moving, This project is the perfect synthesis of what we have been doing at Darklight. Well done folks, I cant wait to see where it goes next – go creative commons!

Derek O’ Connor, Darklight Programme Director:

What can I say… I was blown away. Congrats to everyone. It made the festival.

Rachel Rath:

Congratulations to all… Thank you for the opportunity to be part of something so historically extraordinary. I am in awe of the film, such melding of such talent.

I am so honoured to have been part of this event that is so uniquely collaborative and inventive. Perhaps other cities in Ireland/the world/the universe might make their own?

I can’t wait to see the individual pieces.

Thank you and well done Andrew for getting this off the ground. Thanks Lenny and Declan for your amazing editing. Thank you filmmakers for your talent. Thank you Derek and Nicky for the setting and opportunity to do this. I am left feeling so inspired and elated.

See you all out on set!

Miriam Ingram:

Have to say, I was utterly blown away this evening. What a flushed honour to have been a part of this – as an umbrella-holder and proud mum. Well done to everybody who made the whole thing happen.

May the briars and brambles scrawl and tangle, as you sleep for a hundred years… 🙂

It was an amazing experience to be involved with this incredible event. Maybe we can all do something like this again when we manage to get our collective energy back. All the best 🙂

  1. A plastic bag trapped and blowing on a telegraph pole? A pair of underclass Dubs mugging a middle-class passerby to a dialogue of Jackeen witticisms? Clichés both. The woman with the chicken very fascinating though…
