Ken Loach, Paul Laverty and I had a terrific time making “The Wind that Shakes the Barley” in County Cork. We set ourselves a big challenge in making a period war film on a very tight budget and at times it seemed daunting and we felt we could never pull it off. But we managed to do it with the help and support of all sorts of people in the area, both from outside and within the film industry. We chose Cork for various reasons: its independent spirit, the beautiful landscape, its rich seam of acting talent and the wide variety of locations on offer – and we were not disappointed with our choice.
We filmed in many areas: chiefly Coolea (near Ballyvourney), Bandon, Buttevant, Mallow and Cork City. It was a complicated shoot but we were very well looked after wherever we went and local communities in each area helped with details like costumes, set decoration, transport and security. Almost all of the actors were Cork based which gave the film its roots in a community. Wherever we went we were welcomed and we genuinely felt that the film belonged to County Cork by the time we had finished it. We had its premiere in a shopping mall just outside Cork City and the presence of so many local people at that made us feel really at home. It gave us real pleasure to bring home to Cork the Palme d’Or that the film won in Cannes.
We would love to work in Cork again and hope that one day a project turns up that will take us there.
