'Making Waves' - Aoife McArdle’s Short Film 'Every Breaking Wave'

Recommended Posts

Love this. There was a bit of commotion on social media about U2 needlessly digging up Ireland's troubled past but I don't get that in this - I just see a very good piece of work.. I like the use of The Troubles in their too, especially as I love that track.

I think it's important to look beyond the politics of Northern Ireland to appreciate what the film maker is trying to achieve. That is basically what I did and it works on that level as an 'across the divide' love story with dramatic effect set in the era it wants to portray.

Love the Stiff Little Fingers soundtrack ('Alternative Ulster') at the start - almost takes me back. :)

I agree yardie, I didn't see it as U2 dragging up the past, it's not their film after all, the film maker was just inspired by their music.
So taking it as it was intended I thought it was very powerful, it moved me to tears actually.

I think the criticism was that U2 were "cashing in on the Troubles"...as you said, I just don't see that. This is a wonderful little piece.
