IFI & TRADFEST 2016: THE FARM BELOW THE MOUNTAIN

Director:

Duration approx. 70 mins, 1958


This film screened 30th January 2016.

A Ciné-Concert

The film documents the honeymoon journey in the late 1950s of amateur filmmaker Ernest Tiernan and his young wife Kathleen (née Durkin) from Scotland to a small farm in Cornamuckla, Co. Leitrim, home of her Irish relations.

Fifty years later, musicians Patrick Carayannis, Rodney Lanchashire and Séamus Hernon create a musical complement to the film, interweaving live traditional Irish music with the voices of Ernest and Kathleen recorded shortly before they died.

The ciné-concert will be preceded by Gael Linn films about traditional Irish music, including newsreel of the Fleadh in Ennis in 1962 and Louis Marcus’ multi-award-winning documentary Fleá Ceoil made in Kilrush in 1967.
In association with Temple Bar Tradfest 2016 (January 27th – 31st).
