As the analogue age draws to a close, eight men sit in an Irish bar battling to remain relevant in the digital world; the TV in the corner a harbinger of this technological future. It is the day of the analogue to digital switchover of television transmission. Conversations about life, death and quantum physics mix with pints to create a surreal document of the switchover day and of people caught between two worlds. Taking inspiration from that little piece of information that is lost in the transfer from analogue to digital, the film seeks to examine who and what is lost in the relentless rush forward. The setting of the Irish pub is pertinent as it is itself a symbol of an analogue world that is in danger of being lost in modern society. The film essentially becomes a poetic, allegorical study of people at a certain time and place. It is about the characters that are living an analogue life in a digital world.
Keith was born in Ireland in 1979. In 1997 he began studying Film and Television in Galway City and began working professionally whilst in college. Walsh has been making documentaries since 2005 and his debut documentary for Irish terrestrial television was I Was You.

Apples of the Golan, a 2012 feature documentary won the jury prize at the Baghdad International Film Festival 2013.
