Hugo Hamilton - How to Belong

Shot in Ireland and Germany, this documentary reflects on author Hugo Hamilton's dual identity and how this shaped his award-winning memoir ‘The Speckled People’. The book told a heartbreaking story of life as a child in a household torn apart by the “language wars”, with a German mother who fled after the Second World War and a fanatical Gaelgoir father.
