On a River in Ireland
Shannon - Geheimnisvoller Fluss im Herzen Irlands
The Shannon is Ireland's greatest geographical landmark and the longest river in these islands. For 340 kms the river carves its way south through the heart of the country almost splitting Ireland in two. It is both a barrier and highway - a silver ribbon holding back the rugged landscapes of the west from the gentler plains to the east. On its journey, the Shannon passes through a huge palette of rural landscapes. On little known backwaters, Ireland's wild animals and plants still thrive as almost nowhere else. «On a River in Ireland» offers a remarkable portrait of Ireland's greatest geographical feature, using a host of techniques and showing never before filmed Irish sequences and stories.
