Tadhg O’Sullivan’s (The Great Wall, 2015) latest film is a beautiful and poetic cinematic ode to the moon. Drawing on a wealth of international cinematic archives in combination with literary fragments and original moonlit cinematography filmed across five continents, O’Sullivan deftly explores the myriad ways the moon inspires and captivates.
Following the cyclical structure of one complete lunar phase, To the Moon weaves its stories and fragments into a thread that serves as a guide across unexpected and magical terrain.
Featuring a new score by Amanda Feery and Linda Buckley, plus fragments of lunar-themed opera and classical music from Wagner, Debussy and Dvorák, this year’s most romantic film is a mesmerising tribute to the moon.
