The film was made by local film maker Martin O'Donoghue. In this segment, Anthony talks about his many visits to Newgrange and discusses some of his personal insights into this ancient wonder. He talks in particular about how he wanted to write a book devoted to Newgrange, having included the monument as part of a wider look at the ancient landscape in his first work, Island of the Setting Sun.
The project is a precursor to a much larger, full-length documentary film on the subject, exploring the meaning of Newgrange to people today. Planning for that larger film has begun.
