Secret Family Recipes (Documentary, 2012, 53 Minutes)
I grew up in Ireland but left there in 1985 and finally settled in Sydney. I made this film because I wanted to explore what connects me to my family, my community and my place of birth. What aspects of my Irishness will I pass on to my daughters in Australia? What parts will they want? In ‘Secret Family Recipes’ the ritual baking of a family cake unlocks hidden stories of family, community and place.
