Ep. 39: Being English in Northern Ireland

Another World Episode 39

Belfast past midnight

Thriteen years ago, Nervys Young came from a village outside of London to Northern Ireland.  She intended to stay for a three year degree program and has not left since.  Ned talks about how totally naive she was when she first moved here, whether she’s ever considered herself a local, how people react to her accent, and why she hasn’t run for the hills yet.

It’s all about local independent filmmaking this week, with conversations with two young filmmakers, Michael MacBroom & Stuart Sloan.  Michael wrote and directed a feature film, finished earlier this year, called I Wanted To Talk To You Last Night, and is now working on a second feature to begin shortly.

Stuart worked on the feature too, and has completed his own film recently, a short documentary on cranes and redevelopment in the city.

You can see Stuart’s crane film, Counterweight, at his YouTube site, http://www.youtube.com/ user/sloanowski, and there you can also find a short documentary with Michael MacBroom about the making of his first feature.
