An Bonnán Buí (1995)


This film is a lament to the Bonnán Buí (the yellow bittern), a bird that died for the want of a drink. Set on a cold New Year's Eve in South Connemara, a man decides to leave his lonely house and join his fellow human beings in seeing out the old year. The yellow bittern is left to the elements as the lakes and pools freeze over.
