Song of Granite Trailer

“The songbirds of the air listened in wonder to this song, the most beautiful song in life.” Oscilloscope Laboratories has debuted an official US trailer for a film titled Song of Granite, which is Ireland’s entry into the Academy Awards this year. This film is about an Irish singer named Joe Heaney, who was one of the greats of traditional Irish singing (also known as sean nós). Similar to I’m Not There in a way, this seems to involve various musicians and actors playing Heaney, and it’s shot in stunning B&W which seems to make it all the more mesmerizing. Starring Colm Seoighe (as young Joe Heaney), Mícheál Ó Chonfhaola (as Joe Heaney, 40s), Macdara Ó Fátharta (as Joe Heaney, 60s) & Jaren Cerf (as Rosie). This looks like a very soulful, moving film full of some exceptional Irish singing and captivating cinematography. See below. ›››
