Níos Doimhne


Selected to screen at Sights and Sounds of Ireland Today, Solas Nua, Dupont Underground, Washington D.C. (March-May 2018).

There is a strong psychological undercurrent in this work, we feel the pull of familial bonds, traces of memory and the order of time. All these elements combine to weave a portrait of the turf cutter who rhythmically continues his task which, ordinarily mundane, becomes a thing of ritual beauty.
