At Carrane Hill Bog

Ascending Carrane Hill, County Sligo, Ireland

At Carrane Hill Bog Natural Heritage site, light writing against a dark landscape begins the film.  With the dawn approaching, light writers chase each other, playfully making their way to the hilltop, and experimenting with the first two words. As the morning brightens, they arrive at the crest of the hill and perform a beautifully choreographed ‘for peace’. The writers leave only the trail of their light as they leave the site, and the camera plays with many of the undulating features of this landscape – including a distant shot, through the morning veil, of Knocknarea. Legendary Irish musician Seamie O’Dowd’s vocals have begun the incantation of ‘Peace’ and ‘Bright Light’ sung in Irish.

Greeting the morning
