Engaging with the world
IRELAND , Canada
| 104 minutes | 2017
Spellbinding traditional music and lush natural settings are the raw materials of this unconventional hybrid on the roots of Irish music. Shot through with mesmeric sean nós (Irish for “old style”) singing, this lyrical work in gorgeous, grainy black-and-white charts the origins and eventual rise of folk singer Joe Heaney. Unmoored from the usual biopic conventions, Song of Granite draws on ethnic and cultural observations while blurring the boundaries between fiction and documentary.PRESENTED BY FILM POP
