Ireland, 2016

Synopsis

Taking as a point of departure the compelling 18th Century figure Ambrose O’Higgins, Further Beyond attempts to retrace his remarkable journey from Ireland to Chile, and speculate on the idea of place, while continually getting sidetracked by a competing story of immigration and displacement.

Our take

A riveting, completely original anti-biopic from one of our favorite filmmaker duos, whose revisionist crime film, Helen is an ingenious gem. Molloy & Lawlor’s first foray into documentary explores identity and space while playfully dissecting the very nature of cinematic language. And it’s funny!

Further Beyond Directed by Christine Molloy, Joe Lawlor
