The Gnomes

The Gnomes

This is the story of The Gnomes: three Irish guys who built a small, biologically intensive farm on a disused part of the Dublin City University (DCU) campus in Glasnevin, Dublin.

Director Bio

Finn is a photographer and filmmaker who lives and works in Dublin, Ireland. He originally studied journalism but spent more time taking pictures than writing stories. His work allows him to spend time focusing on people, usually in real locations, and is observational in nature and relies on a strong interaction with the subject. He is the founder and a creative partner of Stills & Motion; a network of image makers and thinkers working to tell powerful stories.
