Explorer, filmmaker and visual anthropologist Robert J Flaherty’s 1934 film Man of Aran stands up to be counted once again.
Three years in the making, Flaherty’s epic portrayal of life off the western coast of Ireland where families eked out a living from potatoes and shark oil is a brutal, beautiful and pioneering film that still challenges the boundaries of the documentary form.
This singular and stunning film has undergone a full digital restoration and this release contains a host of extras including original outtake footage, Jim Mulkerns celebrated short film Return of the Islander and George Stoney’s excellent 1978 documentary How The Myth Was Made detailing the many tricks Flaherty pulled to put his vision on the screen.
At the World’s End, there will always be The Man of Aran.
