An animated documentary about repair and recycling in rural Ireland. In Ireland old-hand painted furniture is often associated with hard times, poverty and a time many would rather forget. Because of this association much of the country’s furniture heritage lies rotting in barns and sheds. In the making of this film 16 pieces of abandoned folk furniture were restored and returned back into daily use. This film was shot in a green and environmentally friendly way using local craftspeople, local narrators and inexpensive second-hand equipment. Only natural light was used to shoot this film.
