Liminal not only explores seal folklore, it provides background information on the common and grey seal, and how folklore is a global subject that can reconnect people back to landscape.
Liminal is a 10 – 15 minute documentary on how folklore can influence people’s interactions with the landscape. In particular, the film looks at folklores revolving around seals and seal conservation.
In Ireland, there are two types of seals: the common (or harbor) seal and the grey seal. While neither species of seal are currently threatened, it does not take much to tip the balance. Seals share the same environment that is under threat from over-fishing, climate change, and pollution from humans such as plastics.
