The Silence of I Am

Synopsis

Following a break-up, a couple go their separate ways: one, played by an Irish singer Adrian Crowley, stoically contemplates the depths of his loss, while the other, played by Vera Graziadei, desperately roams the lunar landscapes of the Burren (West Ireland) in search of healing and consolation. Both find it through transcendence in nature and art. The four featuring poems are from Vera’s debut poetry book The Holy Longing.

Director’s Statement: The Silence of I am is my first attempt to marry my three passions: film, poetry and Nature. Starting with four poems from my debut poetry book The Holy Longing, I proceeded weaving them into a loose dramatic narrative and chose the otherworldly Burren National Park of West Ireland as a location to create a film, which strives to inspire, move and uplift the audience.
