The Silver Branch

Directed by Katrina Costello

“... plainly gorgeous. ” Film Ireland

Farmer and poet Patrick McCormack is a descendant of generations of farmers who have lived off the wild landscape of the Burren.

But Patrick and his rural community have been drawn into a divisive battle with the Government, leading them to the Supreme Court to decide on the fate of this iconic wilderness.

The Silver Branch explores the exquisite texture of this natural world, bringing us a rare glimpse of a disappearing way of life with all its richness and roguery, and examining our deep connection with the Earth and our ancestral wild spirit. 

Katrina Costello's film delivers a story of hope that shows that we as individuals can make a difference to our universe.
