Episode 168: Howth, Dublin

Just outside of Dublin’s city center lies the fishing village of Howth.  Idyllic and peaceful as the town may be, the Irish sea was not as accommodating when we went out on Joe Caufield’s boat to empty his crab traps.  This film captures that rough experience on the water as well Joe’s stay in business as a small fisherman.  Also, this is probably the first film in English that we’ve had to subtitle: what an accent!

    If his family have owned property in Howth he’s going to be OK. Glad his ilk remains. All too soon, none.

    Subtitles are great. I have been living here in Ireland for over 20 years now but still might find it difficult to understand everything:)

    Phenomenal filmmaking: capturing and overlaying visual and aural textures distinct to the story allowing it to be thoughtful and at the same time visceral.
    How do you do it!?!
