This short film was made by Myles O’Reilly in 2010 who is one of our favourite directors whose work we have featured in the past. On this occasion his camera followed Mary Hickson and musicians Caoimhin O’Raghallaigh and Kate Ellis to Iceland to meet with band Amiina. During their stay they also stopped by on Valgeir Sigurdsson (composer and producer) of Bedroom Community fame. As usual the cinematography is beautiful and in tune with the music.
Caoimhin O’Raghallaigh, Kate Ellis, Mary Kickson and Myles O’Reilly went to Iceland with the support of the Arts Council to develop a musical idea with the Icelandic band Amiina. The first chapter in a project to develop closer relations between artists living in Ireland and Iceland through the Monks of Skellig Micheal, the first people from Europe thought to have settled in Iceland over a thousand years ago.
Filmed and edited by Myles O’Reilly in October 2010.
