The programme, which was co-curated by IFI and Minceirs Whiden, features a broad selection of footage of Irish Travellers from the 1940s to the present day and includes documentary films about Traveller funerals (1940s); Traveller crafts (1950s) ; Traveller nomadism; campaigns for Traveller rights; and contemporary Traveller culture. It also includes fictional representations of Travellers.

After the showing Maria Joyce of National Traveller Women Forum, Kathleen Sherlock of Minceirs Whiden, and Ann Burke of the Southern Traveller Health Network will lead a discussion on how Irish Travellers have been portrayed on film, has this played a part in the stereotyping of Irish Travellers, what if anything has changed over the years.  Active audience participation in this discussion is encouraged
