If you were lucky enough to see The Pipe, Risteard O’Domhnaill’s debut documentary about the ongoing opposition to Shell’s Corrib gas pipeline in north Mayo, on the west coast of Ireland, you’ll know he’s dogged in his pursuit of his story and relentless, in his story telling.

 Risteard, a graduate in theoretical physics and a tv cameraman, has now tackled an even bigger subject, the Atlantic Ocean and how oceanic countries, Ireland, Newfoundland and Norway have each dealt with the resources of the ocean, with regards to preserving its fishing communities.

Narrated by acclaimed Irish actor, Brendan Gleeson, Atlantic is not just one to look out for, it’s one to seek out. It won Best Irish Documentary at the Dublin International Film Festival in March.
