The Burren: Heart of Stone is a magical, magisterial film about the living things-human, animal and plants- which inhabit that apparently “barren and sparse landscape”. “Watching it made a mad world stop for a while to remind you what really matters. There won’t be a better programme all year. It deserves every award going.”
Sunday Independent, Film Review Eilis Hanlon, 18th April 2021
The Burren is a place full of intrigue and mystery to film-maker Katrina Costello, who has been working there for over 13 years. Her documentary captures the raw and complicated beauty of the Burren using intimate natural history photography and the spontaneous insights of a cast of local contributors.
Over 1 million Irish people have watched the film, and described it as Powerful-enchanting-and-otherworldly… This is the sort of television that is worth talking about because it touches the soul”
