2018 Oscar® Selection, Ireland

This poetic, hybrid exploration of the life of legendary sean nós singer Joe Heaney mixes narrative elements with performance footage that goes beyond the traditional music documentary and touches on Ireland's past and present. Filmed lovingly in black and white, the striking imagery of Connemara and Ireland's west coast, and the people of the land anchor this lyrical look at the life of Heaney, the master of sean nós (traditional, unaccompanied singing). The film also features performances from some of the most renowned sean nós singers of today and the artists inspired by Heaney's work and legacy.
