Silence DVD

Silence DVD
This highly-praised debut feature from the Irish documentaries Pat Collins takes the form of a trip through the West of Ireland as a sound-recordist returning from Berlin seeks to capture the sound of silence, but after meeting the local inhabitants is drawn back to his own roots on Tory Island off the coast of Donegal. (The DVD also includes an earlier documentary by Pat Collins about Tory Island). Influenced by elements of folklore and archive, Silence unfolds with a quiet intensity, where poetic images reveal an absorbing and ultimately moving meditation on themes relating to sound and silence, history, memory and exile.
