Ballycastle

Ballycastle documents the artistic journey of Stuart Shils, a noted Philadelphia-based landscape painter of Jewish heritage whose life and work was forever changed by his encounter with a remoteseaside village in Northern Ireland. Moving between the starkly contrasting landscapes of Philadelphia and Ballycastle, the documentary highlights Ireland's exquisite light, dramatic scenery and fierce, ever-changing weather. Shils' passionate, colorful and often amusing reflections illuminate the life-altering influence of one village on an artist. Beyond the enormous impact of the creative experience, Shils' time in Ireland also deepened his appreciation of the connection between the Irish and Jewish people.
