In her often very moving DV documentary, filmmaker Dierdre Lynch retraces photographer Dorothea Lange's 1954 trip through County Clare, tracks down the surviving subjects of Lange's haunting photographs, and gets them talking about their lives. Individual moments are quite touching, as when one man reflects that his only photograph of his father is one of Lange's images in Life magazine. At times Lynch moves a bit too quickly, tantalizing us with a brief interview that begs for expansion and then moving on. But what emerges from her many miniature portraits is a larger picture of people whose lives are deeply imbued with a sense of place. 87 min.
