All that is, is Light

Funded by an Arts Council of Ireland Film Project Award, ‘All that is, is Light’ uses a range of formats; HD and DV to create a contemporary archive of the commonplace – a personal diary film of sorts. “What began as an experimental ‘road movie’, slowly evolved into a film that stayed closer to home; images and sound from one particular place: a boiling sea in winter, the tranquility of seals singing at night, a boat sidling along the Stag Rocks, my mother laughing and singing, my children looking for shells in the dusk. The second chapter goes further back to become something more fragmented and memory-based; a wish to pause time perhaps.
