A work-in-development showing that weaves recorded interviews, found photographs, film and movement together to begin to uncover a hidden life.
Stories offer us a way of making sense of the world and of creating a shared understanding of who, what and why we are. One such story which has captured the Galway imagination is that of Una Taaffe, whose memory continues to intrigue and inspire posthumously. Una’s life has taken on a legendary quality in Galway where she is remembered with great fondness. Her life speaks to wider concerns of identity; finding a sense of meaning and place; how we peel back layers of myth-making and perception to find the real human being.
Stories and memories of Una are constellated in this exploration of the essence of a lady who left a deep imprint on the collective consciousness of Galway.
