Coming Home Documentary Released
October 23, 2016
I did the original score for a documentary called 'Coming Home'. It also includes some music from my brother Conor Ebbs. We're really looking forward to seeing it. It's about Irish emigrants and the stories of some of them as they struggle to find happiness abroad, with some of them attempting to return home and how it all it all turns out.
The film always struck a massive chord (if you'll pardon the pun) with me, because I have a brother, Niall who emigrated to the US a few years ago. He lives in Minnesota. Emigration is hard on the people that leave and hard on the people left behind, but it is a reality of life and of course it can often bring happiness and satisfaction to those who build lives abroad.
I think the documentary will be a really good, emotional piece and I'm looking forward to seeing it myself. The film is screening in several countries from November. You can check out the official trailer here https://vimeo.com/187386485
