SIRIUS: 2 Channel Land
SIRIUS presents 2 Channel Land, by the Irish artist Frank Sweeney, co-commissioned with aemi.
2 Channel Land is a north-western docu-fiction film exploring the history of analogue signals spilling across the borders of Ireland and Britain. Guided by a mysterious threshold deity, we take a journey through Ireland's borderlands in search of community. The research for the film included several interviews relating to pirate television deflector systems in Cork, country music pirate radio stations on the Irish border and the use of church bells as early forms of communication.
