We spent the last two years working on this documentary on Irish basketmaker Joe Hogan, based in Connemara. From the bank of Lough Na Fooey to Killary Fjord and beyond, the film takes a look at the process of basketmaking, the regenerative and hardy nature of willow growing, and how the landscape influences his work. Working with acclaimed UK-based composer Tom Hill, the film will premier in late-2023.
