The diverse glories of the city of Galway in the West of Ireland, celebrated in song, performance and image, make this lyrical bilingual documentary a must for any lover of all things Irish. Cumar (the Irish word for confluence) is an artistic exploration of Galway, set in a lush green countryside at the edge of the sea. The city has long attracted Ireland’s most adventurous storytellers in every medium and genre, with the confluence of cultural riches evoking both mystical and mythical elements shaping its cultural fabric and making Galway a legend in its own right.

Over the course of four seasons, director Aodh Ó Coileán charts the city and county’s changing palettes, moods and weather fronts. Featuring a host of artists, including musician Máirtín O’Connor, novelist Mike McCormack, poet Rita Ann Higgins, singer Róisín Seoighe, visual artist Pádraic Reaney and comedian Tommy Tiernan.

In Irish and English with English subtitles.
