The Human Flock

We are living at a critical moment in time, with major political, economic and ecological shifts and crisis, and The Human Flock shines a light on the fragility of humankind and the planet. The film sees a group of people navigate their way through an abyss of black water and fog. Somewhere between this world and elsewhere this emotive work looks at isolation and alienation of the individual, conflict and strife, and the need for connection and unity. The film equally suggests some form of underworld while having deep resonances with our contemporary lives.

It was opened at Lismore Castle Arts 2017, curated by Eammon Maxwell.
