CUMAR - A Galway Rhapsody

Directed by Aodh Ó Coileáin

“Cumar: A Galway Rhapsody is a timely, engaging and at times provocative reflection on Galway (city and county) as a distinctive place from the perspective of some of the city and county’s leading creative figures.” Seán Crosson, Film Ireland

The focus of this bilingual film is a visual evaluation of the link between these Galway-based artists and their environment.  Cumar – A Galway Rhapsody also parses some of the diverse cultural influences that have shaped Galway itself and moulded its artistic culture over time.  Long a crossroads of sea, of land, of thought and story, Galway has always been receptive to new influences; the city bears the print of so many civilisations and cultures and the film examines the influence of Galway on these seven artists from varied fields. These artists explore Galway as a nucleus for artistic endeavour and explore if it is really a capital of culture?
