IRELAND ON SUNDAY: VOX HUMANA

Director: Bob Quinn

2008 • IRELAND • 80 MIN


A new work from veteran filmmaker, author and ‘talented eccentric’ Bob Quinn, who for over three decades has recorded life in the West of Ireland in documentary (The Last Days of the Gaeltacht, The Family) and dramatic form (Poitin, Budawanny, Caoineadh Airt Ui Laoire).
Vox Humana tells the poignant story of Luke, a homeless man seeking redemption after the accidental death of his daughter. He is drawn to the Galway Baroque Singers after encountering one of its members who bears a striking resemblance to his daughter. Quinn comments pointedly on the plight of the homeless and disaffected, and the film’s gritty, utilitarian style is nicely underscored by the unaffected performance of the film’s lead, Luke Cauldwell. The heavenly sounds of the 70-member Galway Baroque Singers infuse this touching and heartfelt film.
We are pleased to welcome Bob Quinn for a post-screening Q&A .
