Island on the Edge of the World

Island on the Edge of the World
Over 1400 years ago Skellig Michael became home to a small group of men seeking religious solitude and isolation on one of the most extraordinary locations on earth. In this short documentary we take an audio visual journey through this ISLAND ON THE EDGE OF THE WORLD and into the lives of the monks that came to inhabit it. We see the remarkable structures and steps they built and their unique way of life completely apart from the rest of the world.
