Solas Nua's Irish Popcorn! film series and NYU Washington, DC present, I Am Traveller. There will be a post-screening discussion with director Kim Bartley and John Connors, in conversation with Miriam Nyhan Grey, NYU's Global Coordinator for Irish Studies. There will be an introduction by Solas Nua board member Kate Meenan-Waugh.
John Connors is an Irish Traveller, actor, screenwriter, documentary filmmaker and playwright. I Am Traveller is John’s personal account of what being a Traveller means to him. He reveals what he loves about Traveller culture, as well as what frustrates him about it. He opens up about the prejudice he has experienced as a Traveller all his life – and how that hasn’t gone away, despite his success as an actor.
The post-film discussion portion of this event has been pre-recorded.
