Creating memories and bespoke ceremonies
BRIDGESTONE AWARD "Best in Ireland 2011, 2012 and 2013.
His first feature-length work since the acclaimed ‘Silence’, director Pat Collins marks his return with this mesmeric documentary, a poetic and imaginative film essay that makes unexpected links between events and locations, history and contemporary life.
Making judicious use of archive footage from RTÉ and the IFI, Collins meditates on the themes of colonialism, emigration, the Famine, land, property, and art these histories contain.
With all this achieved through Collins’ unique cinematic voice, the result is a film which starts a much-needed conversation about Ireland’s buried past. (Notes by Conor Dowling.)
