What does Irishness look like? (2018). Directed by Ola Majekodunmi.

What is “Irishness”? And what do you think it looks like? Many have a stereotypical view of this when it comes to mind. However, there is no one way to look Irish.

A raw short video-documentary based on personal stories from 15 different people who are Irish but are often questioned about their identity. It challenges people’s prejudice and opens a discussion on how we think about identity.
