Film: Atlantic

€5

From the maker of The Pipe, Risteard Ó Domhnaill’s new film Atlantic takes on the powerful interests carving up Ireland’s ocean resources.  Brendan Gleeson narrates the film shot across Ireland, Norway and Newfoundland (Canada) by Scannáin Inbhear (Inver Films).  Atlantic was awarded Best Irish Documentary at the Dublin International Film Festival 2016 and it follows the fortunes of three small fishing communities as they struggle to maintain their way of life in the face of mounting economic and ecological challenges. Commenting on his involvement, Brendan Gleeson said that “Atlantic is an engrossing piece of truth-seeking, visually stunning and crafted with clarity and insight. It was an honour to be involved.”
