Mongolian Rhapsody and Jamaican Rhapsody are a double bill of travel films from director Paddy Hayes following Irish musicians on musical pilgrimages to far flung destinations.
Fresh from its successful international film festival run winning awards from New York to Baku, Mongolian Rhapsody follows fiddler Daire Bracken on a musical pilgrimage to the vast plains of Mongolia where he discovers an ecosystem and a nomadic culture stemming the tide of modernity.
In Jamaican Rhapsody, we follow Belfast bard Gearóid Mac Lochlainn to the home of reggae where he looks for the origins of the ‘one love’ message that transcended sectarian boundaries during his teenage years in a divided Belfast. Fiddler Daire Bracken and director Paddy Hayes will attend the screening.
