Film Trailer for Feature Length Experimental Documentary Film
Film by artists:Tom Flanagan and Megs Morley
From the filmmakers:
“Aughty” is a feature length experimental documentary by visual artists and filmmakers Tom Flanagan and Megs Morley. Over a period of 18 months, the artists have explored the Aughty mountain region, its hinterlands and people, a vast and unique geographical area that spans East Galway and East Clare. The film is constructed as an “arrangement of incidents” alluding to a more fragmented narrative experience whereby meaning is constructed through the observation and interpretation of the encounter of place and journey, recording the incidental moments, actions and gestures encountered.
Through observation and engagement with this unique rural region, the film captures the complex relationship between the place, the landscape and the people at a time where the degeneration and regeneration of traditional rural communities and the impact of modernization on rural society is reaching a pinnacle moment.
The film also features original music from Galway band Phantom Dog beneath the Moon and Caoimhe Morley, alongside traditional music scores by local musicians.
The Community Preview of “Aughty” by artists Tom Flanagan and Megs Morley, is taking place in the Gort Community Centre 21st July at 7pm. The event is free, refreshments are provided and all are welcome to attend. The filmmakers will be present to introduce the film.
