A poignant tale of the discovery of hope, written and directed by Tom O’Sullivan in a style that reveals the bare truth.Dónall Ó Héalaí plays the lead roleand Cúán MacConghail the producer. Fís Éireaan and TG4 provided funding for this year’s Oscar shortlisted film in the International Film Catagory. Arracht tells the story of Colmán Sharkey, a fisherman, father, husband, who is living on the wild coast of Connemara in 1845.

There will be showings suitable for school children 12 years and over.

Key points of interest include:

  • The use of Irish in a genre of storytelling that capture’s the attention of today’s audiences and stimulates their interests.
  • Irish history and politics at a time when the country was in a state disrepair due to famine and the economic and social crisis of food and food shortages.
