Tim Robinson has been extensively mapping and studying Connemara for the last thirty years. His work has reached international recognition through publications such as ‘Listening to the Wind’, ‘The Last Pool of Darkness’ and his forthcoming ‘A Little Gaelic Kingdom’. Tim Robinson: Connemara is a sixty minute film based on the three Connemara books and a visual interpretation of his work as a map-maker and writer. An exploration of landscape, history and mythology - this film acts as an intersection between writing, film-making and the natural world.

“It is a response to a book, an interaction with a place and a skilled depiction of a human being who does exactly what we wish all our artists could have the time, space and capacity to do - bring us to an extraordinary place and allow us to really see.”
Niamh Creely, ‘Film Ireland’
