Maurice O’Brien is a documentary filmmaker who produces and directs as well as filming much of his own work. He has made some wonderful documentaries including Hey, Ronnie Reagan which was screened at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival this year. In 2017 he made Pitching Up for the Guardian, it is a charming short doc about how Gaelic football has been used to help integrate the diverse community of immigrants in Ballyhaunis, Co. Mayo. It immediately became one of the most viewed videos on the Guardian website. Moss has also just finished a one-off doc about the Abbey Theatre for RTE.
Before returning to Ireland, he made many films for the BBC – including ‘Northern Soul: Keeping the Faith’ about one of the UK’s biggest underground music scenes; a film about the first literary depiction of recreational drug use ‘Confessions of an English Opium Eater’, presented by Dr. John Cooper Clarke; and the climactic episode of the landmark series ‘The Story of Scottish Art’.Read more »
