Short Film: ‘Entity / Spéirbhean’

Gearrscannán il-ealaíne ó scríbhneoir Máire Zepf, damhsóir Clara Kerr agus stiúrthóir Jo Guthrie. Radharc úr ar an dearcadh a bhíonn ag mná i leith a gcorp féin ag amanna éagsúla dá saol, chomh maith le ceiliúradh ar an áilleacht os cuimse a bhaineann le neart agus mianach na mban.
I nGaeilge le fotheidil.

‘Entity / Spéirbhean’ is a cross-artform short film, bringing together spoken word, dance and film. The collaboration takes a fresh look at how women inhabit their bodies across the span of their lives and is a celebration of the beauty of female resilience.
