directed by Pat Collins
with Eoghan Mac Giolla Bhríde, Hilary O’Shaughnessy, Andrew Bennett

Prolific Cork-based documentarian Pat Collins possesses a restless curiosity, coupled with a poetic eye for the small moments. This feature debut is both a meditation and an odyssey which weaves between fiction and documentary. It traces the psycho-geographical journey undertaken by an enigmatic soundman, Eoghan Mac Giolla Bhríde, from his adopted city of Berlin to his native Donegal. His quest is to aurally document landscapes free from man-made noise – a journey that ultimately takes him inwards, as he finds himself drawn to his childhood home.

“Silence is a remarkable film: daring, original, even groundbreaking in its way. Though my – or indeed any – description of the film will make it sound pretentious and offputtingly arid, in fact it’s anything but. Eoghan’s task might be ethereal, but Collins grounds his film deep in the western soil.” Paul Whitington, Irish Independent.
