Ar Mhaith Leat Damhsa


The Gaeltacht; a journey met with excitement, uncertainty and expectation. A pocket of time where traditional values are adhered to, true independence is tested and an often unrealised love for the Irish language is discovered.

Ar mhaith leat damhsa will look at the inherently Irish rite of passage for young people. A unique coming of age story of young people escaping normality, discovering their true self and falling in love with their national language.

Stagecraft will produce an original short film set in the Gaeltacht. Actors will rehearse weekly leading up to the filming dates. Actors will also dance as part of the short film. Actors will work in a professional environment to produce the highest quality of work. Stagecraft aim for as many young people as possible to be part of the film, while adhering to Government guidelines.

Filming is set to commence the week of August 16th and the film will be released later in the year.

Ar mhaith leat damhsa is proudly supported by Creative Ireland.
