Éanna Mac Cana is an Irish Artist, Filmmaker & Editor. He primarily produces short film & documentary work using a number of techniques and formats: still, archival, thermal, recurring soundscapes, chemical, video, digital, macro lens recordings, screen recordings and rotoscoping.

 

He has been selected for numerous film festivals across Europe. As well as several solo & group shows, both nationally & internationally. In 2020, Mac Cana was commissioned by Northern Ireland Screen to make a mini-documentary on the history of Belfast City Hospital.

Chloe and Éanna exchanged video works that excluded descriptions or statements, leaving the work completely open to interpretation. This was an important element within the project as it encouraged open-ended questions and produced unique insights.
