Rotha Mór an tSaoil – The Hard Road to Klondike

Rotha Mór an tSaoil – The Hard Road to Klondike

Based on the biography of migrant labourer Mici MacGowan (1865-1948) this is a stirring account of his life as a migrant worker and his exile in America at the turn of the century. Mixing archive documentary footage and several silent fiction films, this creative documentary invokes a strong visual sense of both MacGowan's travels and the hardships of the emigrant.
