This is the first in a series of portrait films by director Dylan Ryan Byrne. The idea behind the series is to explore what lies behind people’s passions and what shapes their unique take on life.
Film One explores the craft and philosophy behind bow making and archery with Ireland’s champion traditional archer, Harry. Harry’s preferred bow is the Fusetake Yumi (Japanese bamboo backed longbow), the film follows the process of him making this bow in his workshop which lies in the depths of the Irish countryside.
