Storyline

Home Turf is a fascinating visual celebration on the ancient art of cutting turf by hand in Co. Kerry, Ireland. Following a band of turf cutters from North Kerry throughout the cutting season from April to September, the film gives insight into a way of life that will soon be forgotten. The men come to the bog to cut turf that they use as fuel for the winter. They come also to reconvene after the long winter and catch up on news and banter... they tell funny stories and sad tales. The film captures the sense of community that they feel and that will die with them. In recent years machines have come to the bog to cut turf and soon the traditional methods will be lost. Also lost will the comradeship, and the film is a wish for simpler, more cohesive times. Written by Anonymous
