‘Mote Park, a Time and a Place’ is a documentary about the Landscape, Architecture, Biodiversity and History of an area beloved by its locals though probably relatively unknown nationally. More importantly, it’s a record of the people who once walked its lands, those with memories to be preserved, its residents and those who enjoy the hidden treasure that is Mote Park. Situated in a forest setting of 650 acres just outside Roscommon Town, Mote Park was the seat of the Crofton Family from the 16th century up until the 1940s. A refuge of natural beauty, it is an area that is steeped in history and is home to many species of flora and fauna. Mote Park in its current state is at a crossroads with its future hinging on decisions about what the area means to the people of Roscommon. Is it primarily a forestry area? If so, what happens if forestry is ever privatised in this country? Should resources be allocated to preserving its architectural features? What would happen to the area if there was amenity investment and it were to become a heavily marketed tourist destination?Mimar Media aims to raise the funding required for the films production by means of sponsorship, corporate funding and through crowd funding on Fundit.ie.Check out.
