Bright Vision
(Aisling Gheal)

  •   Donal O'Ceilleachair
  •   Ireland


This graceful, joyous documentary follows the women singers of the Muskerry Gaeltacht, the Irish-speaking region of West County Cork, as they plumb the depths of the sean-nós singing tradition. Acclaimed singer Máire Ní Chéileachair has spent her life mastering the ancient Irish song style, with successful appearances in competitive music festivals. Now she turns her passion toward teaching the next generation, as the film follows her training with young student Shahira Apraku, from her early cautious notes to her rousing first competition. Irish Gaelic with subtitles.


Co-presented by the Consulate General of Ireland
