80 mins – Ireland 2021 – Documentary – Dir: Tadhg O’Sullivan
Music by: Linda Buckley, Amanda Feery and Peter Broderick
This is a cinematic ode to the moon, made in large part from archival sources combined with literary fragments and bound together by a haunting original score. The film steps lightly through the ideas that people through the ages have drawn from the moon — dreams of escape, myths of heaven, songs of longing and loss, odes of yearning, stories of lost futures — taking the viewer on a constantly surprising night-walk through the night sky.
“O’Sullivan has carefully woven the fabric of his film so it does the work for you, pulling you along in the same imperceptible way as the moon draws the tides” Screen International
