British Sea Power follow up their critically acclaimed 2008 album, 'Do You Like Rock Music', with a re-written soundtrack to the 1934 docudrama, 'Man of Aran'.

Robert J. Flaherty's film took the harsh living conditions that the people of the Aran Islands had to endure whilst adding staged elements to create an intriguing documentary, which earned itself the Grand Prix at the 1935 Venice Film Festival.

British Sea Power add to the mesmerising black & white footage with a score that only enhances the film's powerful look at man's ability to survive in hostile conditions.
