Orla McHardy, Goodnight

with an introductory text by Fanny Howe

For the final iteration of ‘aemi online’ of 2020, we are thrilled to present Goodnight by Irish artist, animator and filmmaker Orla McHardy. Considering what has been a complex, inundating year to say the least, Goodnight is a reminder of the value of stripping back the excess and zoning in on what bridges life and death; moments that circle around in the mind as well as in life itself. Much in the same way that Goodnight extends the formal language of animation, Fanny Howe’s introductory text is an expanded, poetic perspective on Orla’s unassuming, quietly epic film.
