The screening on 2 March will be followed by a Q&A with director Tom Sullivan and actor Donall O Healai.

Tom Sullivan’s immensely impressive debut evokes the desperate times of the 1840s Irish Potato Famine with a flinty, bone-chilling authenticity. On the wild shores of Ireland’s west coast, fisherman Colman Sharkey (Donall O Healai) works hard to provide for his family. He extends a hand of hospitality to Patsy (Dara Devaney), a former soldier in the Napoleonic wars. No good deed goes unpunished. As the famine destroys livelihoods and the English landowners show no mercy, there is a night of reckoning that casts Colman into exile and leaves him in search of atonement.
