A Walkabout in Dreamtime Ireland with Poet & Philosopher John Moriarty (1938 – 2007)

A Film By Dónal Ó Céilleachair & Julius Ziz

Music By Peadar Ó Riada

Dreamtime, Revisited is a “walkabout in dreamtime Ireland” inspired by the works of Irish writer, poet and philosopher;John Moriarty (1938–2007)

Dreamtime, Revisited weaves together contemporary and archive material, with excerpts from some of Moriarty’s key talks, in a labyrinthine invocation of what he called his “dream-vision” of Ireland.

Dreamtime, Revisited mirrors Moriarty’s gaze upon the face of contemporary and historical Ireland and explores the spiritual and poetic dimensions of its people and landscape. It weaves a rich tapestry of sound (with music from legendary Cúil Aodha musician and composer, Peadar Ó Riada) and image with a kaleidoscopic trove of archival sequences (unearthed in the IFI Irish Film Archive) complementing the contemporary landscape footage.
