Sean Crosson (1995) ' Irish Short Films Essential Indigenous Productions '. Ropes: Review Of Postgraduate Studies, (4).
Since the emergence of an Irish cinema of national questioning in the mid-1970s, short films have played an important role in Irish film culture. Not only did they offer Irish filmmakers an opportunity to learn their trade and establish themselves, but often the films themselves made original and provocative contributions to contemporary debates including those surrounding cultural identity. This articles examines some relevant examples, including Withdrawal (1974), Emtigon (1977), Wheels (1976), The Woman Who Married Clarke Gable (1985), Boom Babies (1986), He Shoots, He Scores (1995), The Pan Loaf (1995), and Horse (1993).
