synopsis
A temporal bricolage that documents a vulnerable, indigenous Irish speaking community on the island of Inish Bofin off the north west coast of Co.Donegal in Ireland. The film explores the notion of time, memory and fragility and investigates the past, present and future of the community portrayed within it. McGill's film acts as a point of departure for a dialogue between film archives from two different times. Time, in the film, oscillates between a found film archive of home-movies, The Martin Archive from the 1950s and her own archive, which documents the people of Inish Bofin in the present day. The structural strategy of images on two different timescales results in a discord in temporality and creates an interstitial space where the minor voice may become heard in the gaps between then and now. The aim of the film is to bring forth the marginalised voice from the periphery of society and allow it a more prominent status in any reading of Irish Identity.
