GLC: Further Beyond


In their debut documentary, Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor take as their point of departure the compelling 18th-century figure Ambrose O'Higgins. They attempt to retrace his remarkable journey from Ireland to Chile. Key locations in O'Higgins' life - lake in Sligo, a field in Meath, the port of Cadiz, the sea, and the edge of a snow-covered mountain in the Andes - are visited and reflected upon in the hope that something might be revealed, as if these very locations might contain clues. However, as they speculate on the idea of place and what O'Higgins embodies, the filmmakers continually get sidetracked by a competing story of immigration and displacement. Gradually, and not without humour, these intertwining narratives uncover ideas about the transformative power of travelling, as looked at through the peculiar prism of the Irish experience.
