2006: Columbarium
Made with support from The Arts Council of Ireland / An Chomhairle Ealaíon


Columbarium is a film set in the head of a disembodied, warped and mute poet embarking on an elliptical perambulation of Dublin. Concerned with the nature of perceived duality, consciousness and conscience, it is a subjective examination of mans compulsive mind; a meditation on the nature of escapism, grief, hallucination and acceptance: obsessively wrapped up as a long form visual love poem with lots of birds, bees and biplanes.
