This visually poetic documentary was shot against the scenic backdrop of Mount Errigal in Donegal and blends the sounds of nature with an elegant musical score.
The highest mountain in Donegal is presented here as an ever changing character, where “moods change by the minute”. There is a sense of mystery and magic around the surrounding landscape through the unpredictable weather – from sunshine to haunting mist and a luminous blanket of snow.

This government-sponsored film was shot by Patrick Carey for the Department of Foreign Affairs in 1970.
