walking in the stones.jpg

Shot at pre-dawn at Drombeg stone circle in West Cork, a woman faces the camera and blinks and claps alternatively. A simple rhythm represented by clapping on the soundtrack is juxtaposed with a local mans stories of the stones and who built them. A contemporary proposition for a ritual that can connect to the ancestors of this site and yet be of present relevance. This short film was shot on 16mm fomapan reversal B&W stock supported by Deep Time a filmmakers opportunity curated by Mayes Creative in association with Cinestar, LUX and Plymouth University Media Research.
