Arts & Culture / Irish Folk Furniture
We are delighted that Tony Donoghue’s quietly moving Irish Folk Furniture has won the Best Animation prize at Sundance 2013. The film captures the relationship between a community and its furniture and follows 16 traditional pieces of folk furniture – often associated with poverty and hard times – as they are restored and returned to their homes.
There’s a good, brief interview with Tony on anothermag.com
The film was available to watch in full on YouTube until the end of the festival on 27th January 2013. Enjoy a short clip from the film above.
