UNDER THE CLOCK
FEATURE DOCUMENTARY (2018)
‘UNDER THE CLOCK’ is an exploration of the social history of Ireland, told through the prism of ordinary people whose relationships began at one of Ireland's most famous meeting places. Be it the romance of a first date, a nostalgic reunion of old friends or the curious excitement of a visiting tourist, ‘Under The Clock’ unities stories of love and loss, hope and disappointment that all began under the iconic landmark, Clerys' clock.
Under the Clock was an original concept by Garry who produced the feature documentary, working with his long time friend and collaborator, the very talented Colm Nicell who also directed the film.
"The impressively unsentimental portrait of the wider nation offers many surprises."
THE IRISH TIMES
"Under the Clock provides us with a look at things worth cherishing...
a precious kind of picture."
"Each story is told well and without intervention from the director, with the deftest of touches, Nicell entices the best from every interviewee."
"A very colourful cast with stories that are heart-warming, poignant and
provide a rare glimpse into the not-so-distant past."
There are thousands of others who have met Under the Clock, not all of them could possibly feature in the film but every last person has in truth, been represented. For anyone, young or old, married or single, this is a ‘must see’."
