Arracht at The Model, Sligo #vmdiff20
March 5, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
“Actor and filmmaker Tom Sullivan’s feature debut is a strong, character-driven thriller set during a tumultuous period in Irish history. Told in the Irish language, and set on the eve of The Great Hunger, Arracht tells of a fisherman who takes in a stranger on the request of a priest. Events that follow lead to tragic personal struggles, but hope may come in the form of a young girl who needs his help.”
As part of the Virgin Media Dublin Film Festival Tour, in association with access>Cinema, and with the support of the Arts Council, Arracht will be screening in selected cinemas across Ireland, before its nationwide cinema release on April 3rd.
