Directed by Robert J. Flaherty | 1934

With Colman 'Tiger' King, Maggie Dirrane, Michael Dillane

“The photography is brilliant, the best of any of Flaherty's work.”
—Chicago Reader

This rapturously photographed docufiction landmark captures the hardscrabble existence of a fishing family living on an island off the coast of Ireland. The purity of Flaherty’s style—the simple, yet poetic images, the rhythmic montage editing, the unvarnished depiction of the routines of daily life—prefigures Bresson’s stripped-down aesthetic.
