The Other Irish Travellers
The British empire once seemed so permanent but vanished overnight. But what about those Brits at the vanguard of the colonies?
Can you be loyal to two nations? It's the question posed to the Anglo-Irish class of the 1930s. Landed Protestants with English accents, growing up in a newly independent, Catholic, and staunchly anti-English Ireland. This doc takes a personal look at this historical identity crisis, rich in contradictions. Tracking one family's fortunes the film explores how, as Irish nationalism took hold, this individualistic family fought to stay in Ireland.
