DeValera’s Ireland is dead and gone.

The hand animated film OCRAS, imposes my sense of national and personal craving and hunger across three generations, my father, myself and my little cousin. The boy meets the crocodile, my seanchaí, my salmon of knowledge, and as the crocodile feeds the boy three tales, he is consumed with them.

Highly Commended by the Global Undergraduate Awards 2018, the short hand animated film OCRAS: the boy who ate the crocodile (2018)

has now been screened multiple times including in the Gate Cinema, Cork, as part of the premiere art(ist)FILM series of the IndieCork Film Festival celebrating achievement and exploration in Artists' Moving Image , and in Croke Park at the Global Undergraduate Awards Summit 2018.
