Talking to my Father– Film Review by Emily Elphinstone

Director: Sé Merry Doyle

Standing on a bicycle, peering over the wall into what used to be his family home, hidden away in the centre of Dublin, we meet Simon Walker; the narrator and guide of ‘Talking to My Father.’

Written by Walker himself, and directed by Sé Merry Doyle; ‘Talking to My Father’ traces the life and work of his father, Architect Robin Walker. Robin Walker worked under icons of modern architecture Le Corbusier and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe; before revolutionising Ireland’s Architecture in the 1960s as part of firm Scott Tallon Walker.
