They say there are only two stories worth telling: a person goes on a journey or a stranger comes to town. This film is about a stranger who comes to make a film in the small town of Gort in the West of Ireland, and the people she meets when she holds auditions.
Together, they go on a cinematic journey to explore their waking and dreaming lives. Featuring a cast of migrant workers, hippies, Travellers, blow-ins and newly arrived refugees, Town of Strangers ushers us into the private worlds of people living between two cultures, sharing their desires of longing and belonging.
The screening on Friday the 13th of January was followed by a Q&A with director Treasa O'Brien. Hosted by Head of Irish Film London, Gerry Maguire.
