Join NYU Washington, DC and Solas Nua for a screening of Emerald City, a film that explores the lives of immigrant Irish construction workers in New York City. The film will be followed by a Q&A session via Skype with Director Colin Broderick.
Emerald City is a movie about a hard living crew of Irish construction workers in New York City. They are men in their late thirties/early forties who left Ireland in an era of closeted oppression and sectarian violence. They have spent their adult lives self-medicating against a past that continues to haunt them.
The men are hard working, hard partying, likable rogues who are faced with the wreckage of a life spent dodging adult responsibility.
93 min., Ireland, 2016
