Oisín (1969) [Short]

Ireland (MIFF 1971 , Programme 9)
Director: Patrick Carey

Made as a contribution to European Conservation Week, Oisin is a moving record of the stark and simple glories of primitive nature and its sounds.

There are no humans, no buildings, no music and no commentary; there is only a poetic assembly of natural scenes and sounds, without intrusive artifice. The film is a tribute to the poet whose name provides the title.
