HAMMER TO BELL is set in Limerick, a city on the West coast of Ireland known for it’s brutal gang land wars, branded as “murder capital of Europe”. Through careful observation Christina Gangos travels into the core of this brutalized part of the world, watching the unobserved, mesmerized by the ordinary other. Inspired by the work of US Pulitzer prizewinning poet Robert Hass, HAMMER TO BELL takes us on an extraordinary journey from boxing children to greyhounds, marvelous landscapes to chatting anglers and a land of raging bells.
