THE PIPE Ireland, 2010, 83 minutes Director: Risteard Ó Domhnaill In a remote corner of the West of Ireland sits Broadhaven Bay. High cliffs protect the golden sands of Glengad beach and the tiny village of Rossport, which nestles behind the dunes. However, this tranquil setting belies the turmoil that confronts the villagers. The coastline that has sustained generations of farmers and fishermen would also be the perfect landfall for Shell Oil's Corrib Gas Pipeline. The Pipe is a story of a community tragically divided, and how they deal with a pipe that could bring economic prosperityor destruction of a way of life shared for generations.
