Irish Film Institute -TRAD FEST 2014: AISLING GHEAL


Director: Dónal Ó Céilleachair

79 minutes, Ireland, 2013, Colour, D-Cinema

Dónal Ó Céilleachair, Shahira Apraku and Máire Ní Chéileachair will attend the screening.

We are delighted to present Dónal Ó Céilleachair’s enchanting new documentary Aisling Gheal

The film quietly observes the participants of a sean-nós singing programme in the Munster Gaeltacht. Focusing on the relationship between renowned singer and teacher Máire Ní Chéileachair and her talented student, 11-year-old Shahira Apraku, the film immerses us in age-old musical traditions while challenging our notions of ‘Irishness’ in the process.

Shahira Apraku and Máire Ní Chéileachair, one of the greatest living sean-nós singers, will perform after the screening on January 25th.
