The Man of Aran Film

In 1934 Robert Flaherty launched the ‘ Man of Aran’ film. Filmed on location in Inis Mór it describes the life of the islands and in particular shows the struggle inherent in earning a living from the Atlantic Ocean. When the film was released it was hailed as one of the greatest films ever made and triggered a new wave of interest in the islands among the Irish, European and American public. Islanders generally hold that it marked the start of the modern tourism era.
