Man of Aran

  • 1934 ----- b & w ----- 77 min ----- vhs
  • Director Robert Flaherty spent two years of his life making Man of Aran. The result is an exhilarating tribute to the human spirit. In the Aran Islands off the coast of Ireland, the land is so hard and rocky that the people must make the earth in which they grow their food by crushing rocks. The population of Aran engages in a daily battle to survive. In the courage and simplicity of their lives is an epic story of man's sturggle against the elements.
