This experimental documentary follows up the previous Αbbas Κiarostami: Τhe art of living (2003), in which the great Iranion director Abbas Kiarostami talks about Robert Flaherty, the father of ethnographic documentary, and his film Man of Aran (1934). Daly explores anew the effect of place on creative thinking and the situation of the exiled artist in his encounter with a dispossessed land. In the words of Nicole Brenez: “Supremely minimalist and elegant, it achieves one of the deepest meditations about the image in contemporary cinema, rising winds of ideas blowing directly from the barren plains of Aran, the mythical navel of the documentary form”.

Fergus Daly is a film theorist, curator of experimental film and director. Among other things he wrote about Leos Carax, Jean-Luc Godard and Soviet cinema.
