On his final day of life, the mindful Sweeper reflects on the events that have shaped him, and the unique career that has brought him to the furthest corners of the world.
Ciarán Dooley's writing and directing career began with two full length stage plays, which were performed in Dublin in 2013. Following the success of these plays, Ciarán travelled to the U.S.A., where he studied screenwriting and directing at Columbia College. I've Been a Sweeper is his debut short.
I wanted to make a film about somebody who took responsibility for their lives – who had compassion for their happiness. I thought “who could be the person with the most amount of happiness, who truly loves what they do?” I don’t know why, but the character of The Sweeper creeped into my head - Somebody who understands the simplicity behind the craziness of life; someone who not only understands it, but stays true to it.
