A Room in Air - 22 min

In the summer of 2010 poet and visual artist Frank Golden left the Auxiliary Workhouse in Ballyvaughan

where he had lived for over a decade. He wanted to mark his departure from this stark and still resonant space.

He decided to make a film.

When the space itself had been fully prepped Golden cast the film, co-opting the talents of seven local actresses, Theresa Leahy,

 Aja Daly, Marie Flanagan, Judith McGann, Jenny Morton, Tamar Keane, and Dympna Hyland.
A ROOM IN AIR, which runs to 22 minutes, is in two parts. The first part is contemporary, the second a symbolic re-enactment. The film explores the R way in which the famine proved to be a psychic and emotional fault line for Irelandand its people. It suggests that the implosion of society which occurred during the famine, and the institutionalisation which was initiated through the workhouses had a lasting impact.
