A charming, funny and poignant film, OLDER THAN IRELAND tells the story of a hundred years of a life as seen through the eyes of thirty Irish centenarians.
Explore each centenarian’s journey, from their birth at the dawn of Irish independence to their life in modern day Ireland as they reflect on such events as the day they got their first pair of shoes, the thrill of their first kiss, the magic of their wedding day and the loss of their loved ones.
Having witnessed a century of immense social, political and technological change each centenarian has a unique perspective on life and its true meaning. In OLDER THAN IRELAND you will meet a colourful cast of characters eager to share their wit and wisdom; from the oldest Irish person ever on record, 113-year-old Kathleen Snavely to Ireland’s oldest man, 108-year-old Luke Dolan. Their extraordinary stories are our living history.

Brett Morgen directs this authorised documentary which chronicles the life of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. Made with the consent of Kurt's family, the feature uses footage from home movies, audio diaries and journals to document the late musician's life from his own perspective, from his alienated youth spent in the Pacific Northwest to his rise and fall with alternative rock band Nirvana. Interviews with the artist himself, wife Courtney Love and fellow bandmates Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl are also included to shed light on his private life while he was an integral part of Nirvana, battling drug addiction and at the same time starting a family.
