Explorer, filmmaker and visual anthropologist Robert J Flaherty s 1934 film Man of Aran stands up to be counted once again.
Three years in the making, Flaherty s epic portrayal of life off the western coast of Ireland where families eked out a living from potatoes and shark oil is a brutal, beautiful and pioneering film that still challenges the boundaries of the documentary form.
This singular and stunning film has undergone a full digital restoration and this release contains a host of extras including original outtake footage, Jim Mulkerns celebrated short film Return of the Islander and George Stoney s excellent 1978 documentary How The Myth Was Made detailing the many tricks Flaherty pulled to put his vision on the screen.
At the World s End, there will always be The Man of Aran.
