Famous Irish Americans
(2003, 8:00, digital video)
Who's your famous Irish American? Georgia O'Keefe? William McKinley? Sandra Day O'Connor? How about Shaquille O'Neal? This videotape is a secret history of some of our most overlooked Irish-American citizens; a hyperflat exploration of race, America, and the limits of binary thought.
"There just aren't enough films out there like Roger Beebe's 'Famous Irish Americans,' a graphic lecture insisting that black celebrities with Irish last names really are Irish." --Kimberly Chun, SF Bay Guardian
"Original and compelling." --Gary Dowell, Dallas Morning News
