Corvus III

A businessman is drawn from the city to the countryside by mysterious forces. His grip on reality is tested when he reaches an old abandoned house. Here he encounters an ancient Celtic spirt that challenges his understanding of the world around him.

This film explores the theme of the Morrigan — a transnational motif that encompasses many readings and lies at the heart of the Irish nation — Eru (or Eire) being one of three sisters or aspects of the one personality. Corvus III’s monochrome palette evokes historic silent film, underpinned by board like texts — when the Irish voice enters the narrative stream it becomes a direct line to the mythic source reading as an actuality from a time that cannot possibly exist.
