After the Dance will chart Asquith’s investigation into her own complicated family history on the west coast of Ireland.
The feature-length film will trace the fallout experienced by Asquith’s family after her mother was conceived to unmarried parents and adopted, unpicking a past dominated by secrets and shame and involving a new family in County Clare.
Asquith said: “My grandmother suffered an appalling injustice at the hands of the Catholic church, being forced to give up her baby after a secret pregnancy she dared tell no-one in her family about.
“The shame at these stories still exists, which makes this a tough film to make. But I make it with love and pride in my Irish family.”
