The Strule Arts Centre in Omagh was the venue for a special screening of Tyrone native Colin Broderick’s feature film debut ‘Emerald City’.
Shot in New York, the film explores the lives of a crew of Irish construction workers and their struggles with alcohol, loss and ultimately, a city that doesn’t need them any more.
After successful screenings in New York, London and Belfast, the Altamuskin native brought his movie home on Saturday night for a special screening in Omagh.
Colin Broderick spoke to the Ulster Herald about what the film means to him and the generation of Irish still carving a life out for themselves in the US.
