A cinematic ode to the moon, made in large part from archival sources combined with literary fragments and bound together by a haunting original score.

The film steps lightly through the ideas that people through the ages have drawn from the moon — dreams of escape, myths of heaven, songs of longing and loss, odes of yearning, stories of lost futures — taking the viewer on a constantly surprising night-walk through the night sky.

Drawing on a wealth of international cinematic archive, Tadhg O’Sullivan, director and editor extraordinaire, deftly interweaves the old with new original cinematography filmed across five continents, and with literary fragments and a transportive score by Linda Buckley, Amanda Feery and Peter Broderick.

Structured as a lunar cycle, To The Moon is full of constant surprises and delights, stepping lightly through the ages and ideas that people have drawn from the moon to meditate on the fragile and fleeting nature of humanity.
