I Could Read The Sky

Adapted by Nichola Bruce from the acclaimed photographic novel by Timothy O’Grady and Steve Pyke, I Could Read the Sky is a haunting and lyrical film about identity, love, loss and the isolation and loneliness of the immigrant. Dermot Healy movingly portrays a man reflecting upon his life, from his rural upbringing on the west coast of Ireland to his journey to London and experiences in the vividly modern metropolis. Driven by a dynamic music soundtrack that draws from both environments, the film is a labrynthine, visually extraordinary journey into the textures, fragments, details and layers of one man’s life and memories.
