This new transportive documentary from Dónal Ó Céilleachiar (Dreamtime Revisited, Camino by the Sea) takes us back, via exquisite cinematography, to the Muscraí Gaeltacht.
This is the land of Ó Ríordáin and Ó Riada, a land well known for its poetry and music but of late it is also home to a flourishing community of artists : Tadhg McSweeney (painter), Helen Ní Chuill (ceramist), Gearóid Ó Duinnín (musician and painter), Helene Willems-Bogels (inter-disciplinary artist), Meredith Flandreau (potter), and Peadar Ó Riada (composer & sometimes painter).
With a soundscape that interweaves locally-inspired poetry and music the film shows how Muscraí has the power to nourish and enchant.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Dónal Ó Céilleachair.
