Ronan Tynan co-founded Esperanza Productions with Anne Daly during the genocide in Rwanda, and their first documentary together was RWANDA, NO JUSTICE, NO FUTURE. A consistent interest in human rights, has informed his output over the years, especially stories about people, often at great cost to themselves, seeking to stand up for others. DROPPING THE NUMBER 10 FOR DILI, an Esperanza co-production with RPT, Portuguese National Television, and filmed in East Timor, Portugal, the UK and Ireland is a good example.
