Black Herds of the Rain

Last summer I went home to Ireland with filmmaker Andrew Telling to make our second film together since we went to the Middle East to make Crossing Lines.

The cowboy mentality is common in Ireland. It might be because we’re on the Wild West of Europe, I’m not sure really, but we also have a strange fascination with American Country and Western music. It would also appear that our politicians and bankers were in cahoots with each other, got carried away at the party of a lifetime during the Celtic Tiger years and rode the country to near ruin (of course the people of Ireland were at the party too but I’ll leave them out of it). This film is dedicated to them.
