This spring I have participated in the creation of a student documentary film titled “Disturbing the Comfortable”. Yesterday it has been presented during the 7th annual film screening which is part of the Griffith College Creative Show 2016. The film’s purpose is to introduce the viewer to Irish street art that has considerably evolved from vandalism to being a widely admired global art movement.
It has been two months since I moved to Ireland, the place that has been number one on my bucket list for a very long time. I can’t say that things went easy and without stress, but I enjoy every bit of it. Ireland is everything I expected and hoped for, and even more. I challenged my inner introvert and as a result made many wonderful connections. People in Ireland, regardless of their nationality, are very warm and open, easy to approach and extremely helpful. They will give you a warm handshake the first time they meet you and a bear hug when you part ways at the end of the day. Their warmth is infectious and I always find myself carried away in the atmosphere of meeting a long-lost friend or relative whereas in fact we just met for the first time in our lives.
