Seaview
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Paul Rowley, Nicky Gogan


An hour north of Dublin beside the sea is a bizarre looking collection of grey cement buildings with brightly painted doors, and rusting fairground rides. This is Mosney - Irelands Coney Island. A former Butlins holiday camp, Mosney was once a world fully equipped for entertainment, with arcades, fairground rides, holiday chalets. It was a place where Irish families would escape the daily grind of work in order to relax, to dance, enjoy themselves.

Press

A powerful documentary. With an artist's eye, and with the help of an eerie electronic soundtrack, the filmmakers are able to combine the abstract quality of a video installation with the urgent stories of the people they interview." -The Wall Street Journal

"Melancholy but sparkled with poetic moments of beauty and even humor." -Variety

"One of the best documentaries presented at the FORUM of the Berlin film festival. . . perfectly balanced between form and content." -Shermaglie

"As far as documentaries go about asylum seekers and the immigration debate, no other is as human and evocative as Seaview" -Sheffield Doc/Fest
