Disruption is a work inspired by the life and work of Eavan Boland, and in particular her poem Escape. The film takes place along the bottom of the Grand canal, where a stone stirs up the silt of the canal basin, which comes alive as we witness a struggle between a woman and her prescribed role in Ireland, viewed through the lens of Eavan Boland’s imagery.

Boland's work disrupts the mythical, idealised representation of women in Irish Art, which, she felt, did not represent the reality of being a woman in Ireland and this idea informs this film.
