Film notes

Caoineadh, pronounced “kwee-neh” in the Irish language, translates as Lament.

Dublin is one of the world’s most beautiful and culturally rich cities. A rough Viking settlement in 841 AD, it’s now a prominent participant in global markets, especially strong in technology and tourism. One of the fastest-growing cities in Europe, it’s a vibrant metropolis of art and commerce and industrial advancement. Caoineadh is a love letter to the city, seeking to capture the way it can dazzle and romance a visitor. In its own unique way, the film casts the audience to the sky, re-creating the head-rush that comes with new love, for a person…or a city.
