‘In different places, different thoughts emerge.’ Irish artists, Desperate Optimists (aka Molloy and Lawlor) have spent three decades in England – raising their now nearly-adult daughter Molly, and putting down creative and personal roots.

In The Future Tense, they consider whether it’s now time to make a move, in an essay film as erudite as it is funny. They explore their own migration story, those of many before them and ask: ‘does Ireland have an addiction to mass emigration?’ And if so, how has English colonialism shaped that?

Dir: Joe Lawlor & Christine Molloy; Length: 1hr 29
