Enigmatic and complex, Joe Heaney was one of the greats of traditional Irish singing (sean nós). Shaped by the myths, fables, and songs of his upbringing in the west of Ireland, his emergence as a gifted artist came at a personal cost. Featuring performances from Colm Seoighe, Macdara Ó Fátharta, Jaren Cerf, Lisa O'Neill, Damien Dempsey, and sean nós singers Mícheál Ó Chonfhaola and Pól Ó Ceannabháin, and beautiful black and white cinematography, SONG OF GRANITE is a distinct portrait of Heaney’s life and a marvelous exploration of music and song.

“More than the story of an individual, the film is a stirring tribute to endangered folk traditions.” - Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times

“If Andrei Tarkovsky had grown up in rural Ireland, he might have made a biographical cine-memoir as luminously beautiful as Song of Granite.” - Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter

“This patient and luminous life-of-the-artist film freshens everything stale about its genre.” - Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice

“The film's monochromatic images are so beautiful they're almost as soul-nourishing as the transporting vocals and otherworldly reels the soundtrack envelopes us in.” - Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News
