“A love letter to a rare place…a contemplative piece of art in its own right.”--Dave Higgins, Scannain

The diverse glories of the city of Galway, celebrated in song, performance and image, make this lyrical bilingual documentary a must for any lover of all things Irish. Set in a lush green countryside at the edge of the sea, Galway has long attracted Ireland’s most adventurous storytellers in every medium and genre. The confluence of cultural riches evokes the mystical and mythical elements that make Galway a legend in its own right, as director Ó Coileán (THE LARK’S VIEW) explores the entrancing work of a host of varied artists. Included are: musician/composer Máirtín O’Connor; novelist Mike McCormack; poet Rita Ann Higgins; singer/songwriter Róisín Seoighe; visual artist Pádraic Reaney; and comedian Tommy Tiernan. In Irish and English with English subtitles. DCP digital. (BS)

Producer Aisling Ní Fhlaithearta is scheduled to appear for audience discussion.
