JOIN THE DISCUSSION. Official Selection - Dublin International Film Festival 2014
Steven O'Riordan is Joanne's older brother. His previous film was The Forgotten Maggies, a documentary on the human rights aspects of the Magdalene Laundries and shows how State and Church colluded to remand and keep these women against their will. He is also the founder of survivors group: Magdalene Survivors Together.
All my life I wanted to show the world how incredible my sister is. In 2012 little did I know that Joannes story would be thrust into the worlds spotlight. From that moment onwards the camera never left my hand and the observation of my sister not only inspired me to do better in my life, it also confirmed to me the importance of telling this story. I wanted this documentary to be open, honest and above all true to Joanne and my family. What I achieved and captured in my humble opinion was much more than that.
