Eat Your Children

1h 18m Documentary, Irish Film 2015

Eat Your Children is a tremendously timely and provocative film which explores traditions of resistance in Ireland. It is the personal and political response of two economic emigrants, Treasa O’Brien and Mary Jane O’Leary, to the climate of complacency and acceptance of austerity which they perceived upon their return home.

A road-trip takes them around the country meeting the engaged and disengaged – students, politicians, economists and activists – as they try to understand Ireland’s post-colonial identity crisis in the wake of the ‘Celtic Tiger’. At a time when Irish people are re-discovering the power of mass protest, here is a film which captures that energy.
