Feile na Bealtaine are delighted to show two films from Clare Langan, Flight from The City and The Human Flock
Flight from the City is a film about connection, love and separation. Starkly shot in ‘black’ water, it focuses on the bond between a mother and daughter. This poetic, emotive film will strike a chord in all of us, reflecting our own relationships whether it is with a child, a parent or a partner. The film was shot in March 2015 in the hot spring at Fludir in Iceland for a new composition, Flight from the City was created in 2015 for Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, who sadly passed away earlier this year. This is the second collaboration between Jóhannsson and Langan, the first being The Floating World ( 2013).
Music: Jóhann Jóhannsson
Camera and Editing: Clare Langan
Performers: Tristan Gribbin & Leela Lynn Arni
The Human Flock 2017
We are living at a critical moment in time, with major political, economic and ecological shifts and crisis, and The Human Flock shines a light on the fragility of humankind and the planet. The film sees a group of people navigate their way through an abyss of black water and fog. Somewhere between this world and elsewhere this emotive work looks at isolation and alienation of the individual, conflict and strife, and the need for connection and unity. The film equally suggests some form of underworld while having deep resonances with our contemporary lives.
Clare Langan has collaborated again with choreographer Maria Nilsson Waller, with cinematographer Robbie Ryan and editor Adam Finch. Performers: Justine Cooper, Kevin Coquelard, Rachel Donnelly, Sarah Ryan, Maria Nilsson Waller and Richard Walsh. The film is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland and produced by Zanzibar Films. Special thanks to Anna Rackard.
