Socialising and Alcohol

Experimental Film (2010); about the isolating effects of social detoxing when breaking the cycle of drinking alcohol in Ireland.

The main character is involved in a confused struggle while trying to figure out if alcohol is the best path for him or not. He soon sees that there are strong cultural connections to drinking within his age group and murky intergenerational communications when talking about alcohol to older age groups.

It was received well and was shown numerous times in Ireland including before the cinema programme at The Model, Niland Gallery and also as far away as Budapest at the Cross Talk Video Art Festival.
