Katrina Costello | IRELAND
In this philosophical, poetic exploration of people, place, and land, farmer-poet, Patrick McCormack must stand up for his way of life and the delicacy of the natural world and take on his government. McCormack longs to farm in the quite pace his ascendants did. But his life gains a different momentum when he’s called to battle in the courts to decide on the fate of this iconic wilderness, The Burren of Western Ireland. In a wild place where Mesolithic tombs, famine villages, and small rocky fields tell the tales of our long human story in these hills, director Katrina Costello weaves a fight for justice into a poetic love letter to the land, honouring a way of life that is quickly disappearing.
