Kirran and the Hatchmaker
Kirran is 13 and lives in the middle of wild Wales. At home on the farm, viagra buy he hand-rears chickens, writes wild stories and runs shoeless through the fields. Corgam Farm is a world away from the rest of us.
While dreaming of a sea voyage with 63 chickens on board, Kirran nurtures a new small brood. Alongside detailed plans for the trip, we witness birth, death and growing up.
This is an intimate film about childhood, the imagination and growing up.

Tue Steen Muller:
”Kirran and the Hatchmaker” takes us also to the countryside where a young charming boy conveys his passion and vision, breeding chickens, and planning to take them on a sea voyage. He has it all planned and written down and the way he treats the chickens is described with love. There is one scene that demonstrates an extraordinary talent for images: four chicken stand completely without moving with the boy’s feet in the picture, a beautiful Still Life and a director’s courage to let an image speak.
