PRAISE FOR THE FILM:

Gavin Burke - The Irish Independent
‘Julius Ziz and Dónal Ó Céilleachair have made a transcendentally beautiful film . . . a technical triumph’
The Irish Times
‘A piece of truly original cinema! . . . Not just food for thought but a feast for thought!’
Poet Paul Durcan
'If you are looking to experience beauty with your eyes and ears, this is certainly the (film) to see‘
MacKenzie Brooke (wordpress.com)
'A marriage of visuals and words, this is a strange and sensuous experience . . . something otherworldly'
'Magical, wondrous, sensual and spiritual . . . Aesthetically this film is a varied feast
of epic sweeping views that would make Peter Jackson jealous. . .
a nostalgic, heart-wrenching and at times hilarious piece of cinema. '
Film Ireland Magazine
‘Reawakens a more mystical dimension of Irish experience, one to which the majority of us have become closed off.’
Padraic Killeen – The Examiner
'A magical, hallucinatory feast of wonders. I emerged from the cinema spellbound and soul-bathed'
Mike Scott (The Waterboys)
'Dreamtime, Revisited is like a long Imagist poem'
Paddy Kehoe, RTE
'Philosopher-poet John Moriarty drank deep from the well of Irish mythology,
seeking a new understanding of what it means to be Irish, to be Celtic, to be human.
Dreamtime Revisited illuminates his quest with a mesmeric kaleidoscope
of images from Ireland’s past and present, in a joyous tribute to one
of the sharpest minds that Ireland has produced in our time.'
Michael Gray, Film Critic - Irish Echo NEW YORK
'This film is not just like a poem, it is a poem; a visual poem'
Poet Tony Curtis
'Dreamtime Revisited, in presenting John Moriarty in all his clarity and urgency,
invokes the power of the mystical, the metaphorical and the magical, and offers . . .
an opportunity to snatch ourselves back from the edge of the abyss we have constructed'
John Waters, Writer
'Dreamtime Revisited is a poem ... it achieves a sense of what John would invoke time and time
again during his life. I can watch and re-watch this piece and feel the same pleasure
as I do from listening and re-listening to a great song. Molaim an Obair.'
Liam Ó Maonlaí, Singer
