The Irish Film and Television Academy (IFTA) is delighted to present this special  ONLINE discussion for We Ourselves with Cast & Filmmakers in attendance, as part of the Irish Academy awards viewing season.

Writer/Director Paul Mercier is one of Ireland's most intriguing and insightful writers and playwrights, whose work is known for its gritty poetic realism and examination of ordinary, contemporary Irish life - with Fintan O'Toole commending Mercier for his "inclusive dramatic vision".

In this film 'We Ourselves', Mercier brings his incredible writing skill on a journey through the minds and hearts of a group of idealists and careerists as they take their separate paths in life.

We Ourselves is an unconventional film dealing with the lives of a group of seven friends over a period of more than two decades. With rich and textured individual performances delivered in consecutive monologues, the film weaves an intimate drama about nationhood, identity, love and loss, as the belief of close friendships, give way to loneliness and a state of exile.
