Na Doirse is a short Irish-language film with a message about accessibility. A fictionalised version of the real-life experience of disabled mature student, the film takes the format of a one-woman show, but as a film rather than on stage. The main character is in hospital after making an attempt at suicide. She is talking to a psychiatrist, but we neither see or hear the doctor.
As the film is currently being entered into festivals, it will not be available for public viewing or on general release until mid-2024, therefore we can’t go into too much detail about it at this point. However, it has been very well received by the people who have seen it privately – it was made as part of an MA thesis, and was awarded first class honours.
