KERRY INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL | OCTOBER 15-18
The Kerry cow is the oldest cow in existence in Europe. Ireland’s special association with these animals goes back thousands of years. Currently endangered, a small number of individuals are doing their utmost to preserve the breed. This documentary is an intimate account of the bonds that exist between the farmers and their animals.
Mieke Vanmechelen has been appointed by Kerry County Council as the new Kerry Filmmaker in Residence 2017-2020. Her residency will focus on reaching out to secondary school students through a collaborative project, as well as her own professional development as an artist.
The Filmmaker in Residence is a partnership between Kerry County Council and The Arts Council. It is supported by the National Parks and Wildlife Service, and the Trustees of Muckross House. As an expanded partnership it demonstrates the ethos of Creative Ireland, enabling creativity in every community.
