Dave Tynan’s Heartbreak featuring Emmet Kirwan

Sometimes I forget to share some of the short films I find online that I love. I was working on some of the MUBI film submissions and this came, which has just won the Irish Film & Television Academy Award for Best Short Film, which shows Emmet Kirwan doing some slam poetry to tell the story of a teenager who gets pregnant and raises her child, struggling to be an unwed Irish mother from a poor household in modern day Ireland.

I came to know about slam poetry via Shane Koyczan and his sequence at the 2010 Winter Olympics [1]. xD
