In Prince of Muck, retired patriarch, Lawrence MacEwen, is beginning to live out his final days. As Laird of the Isle of Muck, it has been his mission in life to preserve the fragile society on this Inner Hebridean island, so it may pass to his son, Colin, and future generations. His Sisyphean efforts seem to have worked… but at what cost to him?
Directed by Cindy Jansen (Auld Lang Syne, International Film Festival Rotterdam, 2015), Prince of Muck is a beautifully realised, cinematic documentary about a man struggling to accept he no longer controls his son, his life, nor the isle he so loves.
