About A Mother's Legacy (Reeks District Film)
Pauline Bewick, one of Ireland’s best-loved painters, lives and works in the wild, mountainous country of Kerry’s Reeks District. Despite the remoteness of her home, she has great company in her daughter, Poppy Melia, who lives next door and is also an artist. The two discuss their family’s unconventional matriarchal history and how nature serves as their calling to the art world while Bewick works on what will become her final painting. After Bewick’s death, Poppy revisits one of the forests that inspired her mother’s work and considers how her own approach to art might evolve.
