IFTA nominated documentary The Silver Branch set for special screening in Thurles





IFTA nominated documentary The Silver Branch will receive it's Tipperary screen debut at The Source Arts Centre, Thurles next Wednesday, January 23 at 8pm.

This beautifully shot film depicts the life and insights of the inimitable philosopher, poet, and fifth-generation farmer, Patrick McCormack, owner of Fr Ted’s House in the austere Burren.

Through Patrick’s eyes and pastoral verse, this beautifully shot film immerses us in the exquisite textures of the natural world, bringing us a rare glimpse of a disappearing way of life with all its richness and roguery, and leading to a deep connection with the Earth and our ancestral wild spirit.

The film explores our connection to the land, our sense of place and the complete peace that comes from being at one with nature.

The film has won multiple international awards with outstanding reviews from critics across the globe including praise from actor Brendan Gleeson who described it as a "unique and an important cinematic gift."
