Barbara Deignan and her boyfriend Cian McDevitt moved to Toronto just over a year ago, and have made a short film about the Irish diaspora, capturing “the fears and hopes of those calling the city their new home”.

DIASPORA was screened at the Toronto Irish Film Festival over the weekend, and received a huge response from recently arrived emigrants and older, more settled Irish who said they would have loved to have seen a film like this when they first landed in the city to remind them that they were not alone.
