I directed this 52 minute documentary on the marriage referendum in Ireland, capturing the highs and lows of a long emotional campaign for marriage equality through the personal stories of our amazing contributors, archive and observational footage. It was Nominated for BEST DOCUMENTARY SINGLE at IFTA 2016 and Commended at The Radharc Awards 2016.
