Hermitage a film by Leonard Sheil (Lightkeepersfilms) was shown in Washington DC as part of Solas Nua contemporary Irish Video art in collaboration with Dupont Underground

Hermitage is about Skellig Michael (before Star Wars) lies off the westernmost tip of the Iveragh Peninsula,Co.Kerry.Between the 6th and 8th centuries the island became a place of refuge from the world for a small settlement of ascetic monks. This is not a historical account,but a visual diary,with chapters to denote plausible manifestations.Skellig remains aloof,a mystery,and majestic. It is above all-sublime.Very special thanks to Martyn Taig for his interpretation through his music and Solid Design post production.
