Tadhg O’Sullivan is a director-producer, editor and sound artist. From co-directing a feature about cult Japanese musician Yximalloo to exploring Europe’s borders through Kafka in The Great Wall, Tadhg’s work resists classification, instead centering storytelling. He has collaborated as an editor on Pat Collins’ Song of Granite and Silence, as well as Feargal Ward’s The Lonely Battle of Thomas Reid (which he also co-produced); recently produced a radio piece about Chernobyl; and is currently making a film about the moon. Tadhg will join us to discuss his creative process, his approach to collaboration, and finding the right form for each project.
