Older Than Ireland

Alex Fegan’s brilliant Older Than Ireland is the only Irish documentary in contention for an Academy Award in 2017.

The film takes a look back at 100 years of life through the eyes of thirty Irish centenarians, charting Ireland’s history over the last century, all the way back to the 1916 Easter Rising.

There will be 145 films eligible in the category, according to Scannain.com, having been screened in either New York or Los Angeles for at least a week in 2016.

Older Than Ireland had multiple showings in New York, as well as other parts of the United States and Canada.

The awards will be held on 26 February, 2017, at the Dolby Theatre.
