Translating Rilke


If we ever wonder about the making of a translation this short film gives us a brief but intimate glance into how it can work. Over a three year period in West Cork Ailin, Seamus and Sean, with their different skill sets, patiently and painstakingly worked to translate R. M. Rilke into a wonderful and loyal English. ‘Translating Rilke’ shows us some of the highs and lows on the journey.
