For hundreds of years people sailed from Ireland to A Coruña in Northern Spain and walked the camino to Santiago de Compostela from there. In 2014, an inspiring crew crew composed of a writer, two musicians, an artist and a stonemason began their own version of this historical voyage in a Naomhóg or currach, they built themselves. This inspiring, and dangerous, 2,500 km modern day Celtic odyssey stars Oscar-winning musician Glen Hansard, Traditional Irish Musician Brendan Begley, Artist Liam Holden, Stonemason Brendan-Pháid Moriarty and Writer and Poet Danny Sheehy.
Pulling into coastal towns and villages en route, camping and cooking as they went, this eclectic crew forged many new friendships; surprising those they met with a boat that seems to come straight out of the middle ages.
This is the third film of The Brendan Fahy Bequette Filmmakers Series, whose family are endowing this series to help showcase young or emerging artists, as was Brendan before Covid and then cancer ended his career. Brendan graduated from Ithaca College in 2018, where he majored in Cinema and Photography, so we will be showcasing work that he would have loved and been inspired by.
