SILENCE

 Director: Pat Collins | Producer: Tina Moran  Script: Pat Collins, Eoghan MacGiolla Bhríde, Sharon Whooley Camera: Richard Kendrick  Editor: Tadhg O’ Sullivan  Sound: John Brennan, Éamon Little   Additional camera: Colm Hogan Additional sound: Chris Watson

 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.
