SONG OF GRANITE
2017, Oscilloscope, 104 min, Ireland/Canada, Dir: Pat Collins

This SXSW favorite revolves around the life of the great traditional Irish singer Joe Heaney. The harsh landscape combined with the myths, fables and songs of his Connemara childhood helped shape this complex and fascinating character. Enigmatic and complex, Heaney’s devotion to his art came at a huge personal cost. Beautifully shot in B&W, this intense exploration of music and song features performances from Lisa O'Neill, Damien Dempsey, Seamus Begley and sean nós singers Micheál O'Confhaola and Pól Ó Ceannabháin.
