Tubberware is a humorous and unusual short film directed by Irish playwright Paul Mercier. In a provocative exploration of Irish cultural heritage and identity in the modern world, the film presents a day in the life of an Irish-speaking district in the heart of Connemara and cleverly satirises the effects of tourism on the community.
Tubberware was made as part of the Oscailt series of short films, a scheme co-funded by Irish Film Board/Bord Scannán na hÉireann and TG4 with the aim of encouraging new talent in Irish language drama production.
