The Traveller Girl

The Traveller Girl

Pavee Lackeen tells the story of Winnie, a ten year old Irish Traveller girl, who lives with her mother and siblings in a dilapidated trailer on the side of the road in a desolate industrialised area of Dublin.

A photographer as well as a film-maker, Ogden has an eye for telling images that encapsulate both Winnie‘s defiance and her powerlessness. She is so short of money that she is reduced to picking coins out of a fountain. [...] Perhaps surprisingly, the mood is never dispiriting. Winnie and her family retain their sense of fight and their dour humour. None of them display any self-pity, even as their situation worsens. (Geoffrey Macnab)
