The influential American documentary pioneer, Robert Flaherty, spent three years making this celebrated film. Life on the island of Aran in the 1930s was hard. Families were forced to fight against the elements for their livelihoods. It was the custom of the men to await the annual migration of basking sharks. If caught, they would provide a family with enough oil for a year, but to catch them meant setting sail in a flimsy boat. Could it protect the fishermen against the pounding force of the ocean?

The feature has undergone a new full digital restoration and the release contains a host of extra features including the documentary How The Myth Was Made, Short Film Return Of the Islander (25 minutes), Short Films by Robert J. Flaherty: The English Potter and Industrial Britain, Outtake footage found at the Irish Film Archive and an image gallery.
