In an Irish pub, the switch from analogue to digital TV raises deep questions

Following the lead of the United States and the United Kingdom, Ireland switched over from analogue to digital television transmission on 24 October 2012. Using the occasion as a jumping-off point, Analogue People in a Digital Age chronicles the switchover day through the perspectives of patrons in a south Galway pub, as they meet the transition with a very human mix of anger, confusion and apathy. Crafted with humour and heart, Keith Walsh’s film is ultimately a portrait of people for whom, as the bartender muses, ‘the not-so-straight and the not-so-perfect is the lovely thing of life’.

Director: Keith Walsh

Producer: Jill Beardsworth
