Ó BHÉAL - IRISH FILM FESTIVAL - SCÉAL EILE

Ciara Nic Chormaic's documentary is a cinematic exploration of the rise of hip-hop and electronic music artists in Ireland who embrace the oral traditions of folklore, ancient poetry and sean-nós singing to create a new fusion sound and indigenous subgenre. An ensemble piece featuring Irish-language rappers Mory and Oisín Mac, producer and multi-instrumentalist Fehdah and Limerick rapper Strange Boy, this beautiful black-and-white film delves deep into these four artists' practice and how they are breaking new ground in Irish music. Through insightful interviews, intimate portrayals of the artists' creative process in the studio and visceral live performances, Ó BHĖAL tells the story of an exciting moment in time in the Irish contemporary musical landscape.
