Pat Collins' film, following a sound recordist around western Ireland in an intriguing mix of fiction and documentary, makes us really look and listen

Drama 2012 84 mins

Director: Pat Collins


Quietly experimental but highly accessible, Pat Collins' mesmerisingly beautiful blend of fiction and documentary follows a sound recordist through luscious western Irish landscapes in his search for spaces untouched by man-made sound. Thought-provoking and witty in its musings on place, history, language and culture, it's that rare thing: a film that makes us open both our eyes, ears and minds
