When All is Ruin Once Again
Using a subtle black-and-white visual tone, native Irishman and filmmaker Keith Walsh provides a deeply personal look into the impact of modernism on overlooked individuals. This poetic documentary explores the sentiments of rural townspeople in the west of Ireland as a new motorway ploughs through their landscape. Walsh places an emphasis on the difficulties of grappling with change while also questioning the genuineness of “progress” associated with intrusive human activity. Shot over an eight-year period, When All Is Ruin Once Again interweaves archival footage with interview footage in order to both inform and challenge one’s understanding of this substantial piece of Irish history.
