We’re delighted to be co-presenting the International Premiere of THE SILVER BRANCH at the 25th Annual Hot Docs Film Festival.
Film Synopsis: Patrick McCormack is an Irish farmer/poet. As a descendant of the generations of farmers who have lived off the wild landscape of the Burren in County Clare, his life is deeply intertwined with the land. He lives his life moving between tradition and spirit and between body and soul. In this cinematically beautiful, uplifting and emotional celebration of people, place and the natural world, director Katrina Costello spent five years capturing this corner of the world and the fateful turn of events that threatened its future. Patrick and his rural community are drawn into a divisive battle with the government, which wants to increase tourism to the area, thus destroying the fragile landscape. Silver Branch is a bittersweet end-of-era evocation and a story of hope, centered around one man’s journey to keep his relationship to the natural world intact and to make a difference in the world.
