Synopsis:

Enigmatic and complex, Joe Heaney was one of the greats of traditional Irish sean-nós singing. Enigmatic and complex, Joe Heaney was one of the greats of traditional Irish sean-nós singing. Shaped by the myths, fables and songs of his upbringing, his emergence as a gifted artist came at a personal cost. Pat Collins’ fictional account of Heaney’s life is remarkable in many ways: the gorgeous cinematography traversing the west of Ireland landscapes from which Heaney emerged, the audacious sweeps from the idyllic locales through archive footage and stirring traditional music sessions in the pub, creating a soulful piece of auteur filmmaking unlike any other film you will see this year.
