Song of Granite

Body

Enigmatic and complex, Joe Heaney (1919-1984) was one of the greats of traditional Irish singing (sean nós). Steeped in the myths, fables, and songs of his upbringing in the west of Ireland, his emergence as a gifted artist came at a personal cost.
This soulful biopic from acclaimed filmmaker Pat Collins (Silence) charts his rise and explores how these songs helped shape his complex character. Combining traditional narrative episodes with documentary footage, it's an audacious and celebratory music film that also presents an unflinching portrait of Heaney, the man.
