Silver Branch on silver screen

This week’s big screening offering from the Dunamaise Arts Centre is the documentary The Silver Branch.

The Burren in County Claire, Ireland, plays host to Mesolithic tombs, famine villages and small rocky fields. But when the government decides to build a tourist center in the area, some farmers unite and resist.

This film is a beautiful celebration of our relationship with landscape and culture through one man's journey through life.

His journey underpins a search to reconnect with nature, through which we learn a deeper understanding of ourselves and our surroundings.

Directed by Katrina Costello and John Brown, this Irish films features Patrick McCormack and John Joe Conway.

The film screens at the Dunamaise at 8pm on Wednesday, March 13, with tickets priced €7/€5.
