“Writer and Director Treasa O’Brien takes us behind the story of Town of Strangers, a film about a stranger who comes to make a film in the small town of Gort in the West of Ireland, and the people she meets when she holds auditions. Together, they go on a cinematic journey to explore their waking and dreaming lives. Featuring a cast of migrant workers, hippies, Travellers, blow-ins and newly arrived refugees, we are ushered into the private worlds of people living between two cultures, sharing their desires of longing and belonging.” – view website

Assistant Editor for Printed Project Journal edition. Printed Project 15 invites filmmakers, artists and critics to approach the image from myriad perspectives: the home movie, film as material, as a phenomenological experience, as a discontinuous image, as a rendered image. Through interviews, essays and images, contributors explore: image and difference, image and rhythm, the sound image, video and live performance, and the auratic power of the projected image.
