17th Jan 2013
Irish documentary NUALA O'FAOLAIN - A LIFE was chosen as one of the ‘Best of the Best' at the recent Palm Springs International Film Festival in the US but narrowly missed out on the Audience Award, receiving the runner-up prize.

The documentary produced and directed by Patrick Farrelly and Kate O'Callaghan looks at the life of Nuala O'Faolain.  After reinventing her life and taming many of her demons, the Irish journalist, TV producer and author was diagnosed with terminal cancer at the age of 68.  Before she died she gave a passionate interview to her old friend and broadcaster Marian Finucane that riveted the country.

In this documentary Marian makes the personal journey into Nuala's life to unravel the contradictions of this extraordinary woman.

Produced for Accidental Pictures with funding from Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (IFB), RTÉ and BAI.
