Distance is a film about time in a specific place, Glenbride in Co. Wicklow in Ireland told from three temporal perspecitves: a woman, a house and a mountain. Inspired in part by the ideas of Scottish writer and poet Nan Sheperd “Thirty years in the life of a mountain is nothing, the flicker of an eyelid” we also think of James Joyce’s words “Places Remember Events” (written in the margins of ‘Ulysses’) and unearth the faint but perceptible traces left in the landscape.
