About this Event

The Gap DIY Film Project 2020. Using the skills developed during the Gap’s 2016 Mobile Device Film Making Project, a diverse group of people young and old have been recording their experiences of the past few months. Now edited into a short film, it will be a unique document of a community in these strange times.

Ceol na gCrann - The Music of the Woods, loosely based on an old folktale in which the trees talk, this short looks at the magical powers of the woods, and the space they offer to body and soul. It features a Gap-commissioned stag sculpture by Imogen Stafford and magical lanterns made by the community with artist Caoimhe Dunn (of the Gap's Giant Puppets).

If The Shoe Fits - a documentary on the Gap Horseshoe Team, Hunter, about Hunter Gowan, Titania's Palace, and other shorts from the Gap archive will be shown.
