tells the story of an exceptional playwright living and
working in Ireland today. It includes some thoughts from
both his friends and various people who have had the
pleasure of working with him or on some of his plays.
Notoriously, Brian Friel is a shy man, reticent in public
and sparing in his comments on his own work to a Beckettian
degree. However, at the end of this short Brian has commented
on the film itself, which adds a very nice touch.
Contributors include Seamus Heaney, Frank McGuiness,
Stephen Rea and Tom Murphy among many others.
