This is a little student film from 1998. Please don’t sue me… I have not made a penny from it. I am in fact penniless. To all involved, who gave their time tirelessly and brilliantly to a demanding director, who didn’t know much either, thank you.

Town Country was shot on an iPhone in rural Northern Ireland when we lived on the gorgeous Crom Estate in County Fermanagh. The indoor scene is from an ‘adult cafe’ in Belfast. Little M’s dance moves were all her own, improvised and free. The track ‘All of your songs are boring and crap” is by the indomitable Andy Brown, Edinburgh.
This little film piece, depicting idyllic life, was shown in the exhibition ‘Humbly Through The Dust’ in Enniskillen in 2012.
Film piece – Unedited and, at the time, unwatched by me surveillance footage taken by a private investigator working for the insurance company Unum in 2009. Explanation at beginning of film. It’s long and boring, unless you like that sort of thing, which I do. The music at the beginning scares the shit out of me still. End of review.
I already felt like I was constantly being watched and judged. I see myself from the outside, through your lens or another’s eyes. You destroyed and then compounded my faith in the universe.
Fuck you very much.

All the “loves” and “fucks” from the movie “Heartburn” staring Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson, directed by Mike Nichols. It’s really, very good. Watch it. End of review.
