    Coming Home explores the personal voyages of five Irish emigrants, tracing their initial departure stretching back to the years of mass emigration in the ’50s through to the more recent wave of departures sparked by the global financial crisis in 2008.

    Reflecting on such key events as parting from loved ones in Ireland, the thrill of arriving in new unexplored worlds, coping with homesickness, and the challenge of being separated from family and the familiar, Coming Homecaptures the joys and sorrows in the life of an Irish emigrant, and the common dream of returning home.

    A talkback with director Cathal Kenna will follow the screening
