The Irish Pub Film
Last year we visited over a hundred pubs in order to make this feature length documentary on Ireland’s most precious asset, The Irish Pub.
Directed, Produced, Filmed and Edited by Alex Fegan, the film is both hilarious and extremely heartwarming, making you proud to be Irish. This unique and powerful documentary will be released in summer 2013.
The Irish Pub film is a eulogy to the greatest institution in Irish society, the pub, or more specifically, the traditional Irish publican. These characters come from long generations who run and own their family pub. It is interwoven into Irish society. The famine, religious persecution and cultural enrichment all started and ended in the pub. The stories these men and women tell capture days gone by and it is feared these will be the last in a long line of family publicans who lived and died in their pubs with little interaction beyond that point.
