Time After Time

Three Cultures Celebrated in a film of Song and Story by Maireid Sullivan and Ben Kettlewell.

The combination of a traditional Irish singer and a Native American have produced a film celebrating three ancient cultures in song, story, prose and pictures. Time After Time is a symphony of images, an beautiful film made over three years by Maireid Sullivan and Ben Kettlewell. The film is a feast and a feat of editing, composing, artistic vision and integrity.

Maireid, whose last album Never Drift Apart received enormous critical acclaim for her pure, rich voice and poetic vision, brings to the film not only her gifts as a singer, but also her composition and passion, while Ben is a true voice and vision of his people. There is magic here, and wonder, as the film takes us to Ireland, land of the traditional drum, which summons us from across the sea and towering cliffs to behold that country as it once was, forested and fertile.

How fitting then that there are words of love from the genius Yeats, songs of magic and a story of the world of magic. Time After Time moves us with a love ballad as we behold sacred sites, the mystical peaks of mountains and holy wells. The North American journey embraces the superb landscape, captured by an instrumental work by Ben, who then gives a moving reading of the famous speech by Chief Seattle.

Seamlessly the film moves a hymn to celebrate the struggles and faith of the new arrivals as Ben plays some blues that mark these experiences and those of the original inhabitants. There are further legendary speeches of profound wisdom heard before the film takes leave of the American Southwest for Australia and a composition of Mairéid's telling of time before records were kept. The wondrous art of the outback and the deep-based stories and legends are revealed as we behold rare footage shot during a mapping and dictionary-writing expedition in Arnhem Land in 2003. For people of feeling, wrote the French novelist Gustave Flaubert art has no other end, than to conjure away the burden and bitterness. Time After Time proves his words.
