‘Taimse Im’ Chodladh’ or ‘I am Sleeping’ (2014) was Directed by London based Kerryman and artist Denis Buckley and produced by me for www.curator.ie. It has been nominated for the TG4 Irish language award at the Fingal Film Festival
I am very proud of ‘Táimse im’ Chodladh.’ Emigration is etched into heart and soul of West Kerry, it’s social fabric, landscape and its language. ‘Táimse Im’ Chodladh’ is a synthesis of all of that, realised by Denis Buckley, an artist who has experienced emigration for over thirty years. It was made in Kerry, using local talent and resources to achieve a perfectly compact vision or ‘fís.’
From the outset it was an article of faith that this film be made trí mheán na Gaelinne. The script was translated into Gaelainn or West Kerry Irish by Bríd Criomhthain and Bosco Ó Conchúir and recorded as a soundtrack in the Beehive Theatre, Dingle. Bríd Criomhthain, Naoise Mac Gearailt, Jeaicí Mac Gearailt and Nuala Nic Gearailt performed the parts.
