In Ireland, “person” and “place” are inseparable. Sense of place has shaped the Irish literary imagination and Irish identity for some time. Fís na Fuiseoige explores the deep connection between people and place, as expressed in Irish language poetry and local lore. Filmed over a year, and using state-of-the-art aerial cinematography, the film is a stunning visual exploration of the diversity of local places in Ireland, as seen from a bird’s-eye view. This exploration is illuminated by the perspective of the country’s leading Irish language poets who have written about the importance of place.

Director Aodh Ó Coileáin will attend.
