On the Eighth Day of Irish Film Christmas Scannain sent to me…In A House That Ceased to Be,Terry McMahon’s Patrick’s Day, documentary Being AP, Song of the Sea, I Used to Live Here ,Gerard Barrett’s Glassland, two Christina Nobles, and a Panti in a Pear Tree!
This critically acclaimed, award winning feature documentary follows the Irish humanitarian and children’s rights activist, Christina Noble, whose unwavering commitment and selfless efforts have seen her better the lives of countless children since 1989.
Christina’s drive stems from a childhood in Ireland fraught with poverty, loss and institutional abuse. Despite achieving so much in the face of adversity, she remains scarred by the memory of the children she was unable to save: her own brother and two sisters, who she was separated from at a very young age.
This powerful piece of film-making is a mesmerising meditation on the nature of good and evil, and celebrates the triumph of the human spirit. Hundreds of thousands have benefited from Christina’s fearless dedication but is it possible for her to put her own family back together after fifty-three years?
