Skin in the Game examines how Irish artists have found fertile ground for creativity in the demise of the Celtic Tiger and the ensuing financial crisis. Artists like musician Christy Moore, poet Rita Ann Higgins, painter Brian Maguire, and others look at emigration, ghost estates and the legacy of politicians and bankers and their impact on Irish life in the 21st Century

Produced and directed by Donald Taylor Black, one of Ireland’s most incisive and compelling documentary makers, and narrated by renowned novelist and screenwriter, Roddy Doyle (The Commitments), the film was nominated for Best Feature Documentary Award at the 2013 Irish Film and Television Awards
