Aoife McArdle

U2 "Every Breaking Wave [NSFW]" (Aoife McArdle, dir.)

This short film released through The Creators Project uses the U2 song of the same name (and another one of their "free" songs, "The Troubles") as the soundtrack and inspiration for a love affair trying to last through the turbulent days and nights of early '80s Belfast.

It's deeply personal for director Aoife McArdle.

And for The Edge, who says, "The Aoife McArdle short film expands on the theme of Songs of Innocence which was largely rooted in our experience growing up in the early eighties in Dublin. Aoife chose west Belfast in the same period, as it was the neighborhood that was so formative to her. We think her work is something pretty extraordinary.”
