Silence – Irish Film New York

DIRECTOR ATTENDING. “Silence” is one of six films showing at Irish Film New York.

TICKETS: http://www.irishfilmnyc.com/tickets/

YEAR: 2012
RUNNING TIME: 84 minutes

Co-presented by the Irish Arts Center.

Eoghan is a sound recordist who is returning to Ireland for the first time in 15 years. The reason for his return is a job offer: to record landscapes free from man-made sound. His quest takes him to remote terrain, away from towns and villages.

Throughout his journey, he is drawn into a series of encounters and conversations which gradually divert his attention towards a more intangible silence, one that is bound up with the sounds of the life he had left behind.

Influenced by elements of folklore and archive, Silence unfolds with a quiet intensity, where poetic images reveal an absorbing meditation on themes relating to sound and silence, history, memory and exile. Silence is produced by Harvest Films & South Wind Blows, with the assistance of Bord Scannán na hÉireann, RTÉ, Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, Section 481, and the MEDIA Programme of the European Union.
