Overview

5 Journeys, 4 Continents, 1 Dream

There and back again, Coming Home charts the intimate experience each emigrant faced—their initial departure from Ireland, the thrill of arriving in new unexplored worlds, coping with homesickness, and their decision to return home. 

A talkback with director Cathal Kenna will follow the screening.




“Remarkable new documentary… A love letter to a romantic vision of Ireland”
