Connemara Illuminated

A Film Poem by Christine Valters Paintner

DateSaturday March 27th
CostFree Event. No booking required.

Film Poems represent a meeting point between visual arts, spoken word and music. We are delighted to present Connemara Illuminated by Christine Valters Paintner from our collection of film poems. Connemara Illuminated is a poem about what endures: hope and desire, changing seasons, wild places, love and wisdom.

Our collection also includes Refurbishment by Luke Morgan and Charcoal Iron by Nithy Kasa. Selfie by Victoria Kennefick is receiving its premiere screening at Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival 2021 and Wandersong by Nidhi Zak/Aria Eipe is a newly commissioned work, made especially for our very first online festival. Each one is just a few minutes long. Take a quiet moment to yourself and have a look.

Christine Valters Paintner is an American poet living in Galway, Ireland and the author of fourteen books of nonfiction and two collections of poems: Dreaming of Stones (2019) and The Wisdom of Wild Grace (20200 both from Paraclete Press.  You can find more of her writing and poetry at
