WHEN ALL IS RUIN ONCE AGAIN AVAILABLE ON DEMAND FROM FRIDAY APRIL 24.
In a unique collaboration, ACCESS CINEMA, BREAK OUT PICTURES and TWOPAIR FILMS are delighted to present WHEN ALL IS RUIN ONCE AGAIN in a new at home cinema format from APRIL 24th.
The film was originally scheduled to tour a number of cinemas and access Cinema Clubs following festival acclaim but with cinemas and arts venues now unfortunately closed you can watch WHEN ALL IS RUIN ONCE AGAIN direct from your living room. Winner of several awards including Best Cinematography at the Galway Film Fleadh and Best Film at the Kerry Film Festival, this highly acclaimed documentary was filmed over a 7 year period amongst the communities of Gort in South Galway and Crusheen in Co. Clare where the filmmakers live. A new motorway ploughs forth through the landscape, a glaring symbol of our modern age. The film weaves an expansivetapestry of reflections from bog-lands, fire-sides, race tracks and hurling pitches;all while the country is hit by the worst economic crisis it has ever faced and the realisation that we are living unsustainably slowly dawns. W.B Yeats, who lived and wrote in the area where the film is set, provides the title’sprophetic words and prompts us to consider the value of memory and theimpermanence of our existence. All is in flux. The mis-use of our naturalresources percolates beneath the surface and rises up in the form of rising flood-waters. The proliferation of a landscape shaped by man suggests that it won’t betime that ends our civilisation, as Yeats suggests, but the actions of humans. By the filmmakers who made the critically acclaimed Apples of the Golan and featuring the haunting music of Caoimhín Ó Ragalliagh, this film exists somewhere between classic ethnography, abstract poetry and a clarion call for the age we live in.
