Man of Aran: Robert Flaherty 1934 76m

3pm, Friday 4 November

Filmed on the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland Man of Aran depicts life in pre-modern conditions, fishing off high cliffs, growing potatoes where there is little soil, and hunting for basking sharks. It is Robert Flaherty‘s re-creation of culture on the edges of modern society, even though much of it had been left behind by the 1930s. It is impressive for its drama, its spectacular cinematography of landscape and seascape, and its concise editing.
