Q&A with producer Jonathan Loughran and post-screening reception sponsored by the Embassy of Ireland on Dec. 2

Lance Daly (KISSES) pulls off the unthinkable with this brutal revenge Western — set in 1847 Ireland during the worst year of the Great Famine — creating an insightful thriller which melds genre conventions with gritty realism and historical critique. Deserting the British army to return home to Ireland, battle-weary soldier Feeney (James Frecheville, ANIMAL KINGDOM) finds his country — and family — devastated by the famine sweeping the land. With nothing more to lose, Feeney embarks on a relentless quest to get even with the criminally negligent British government and to track down landowner Lord Kilmichael (Jim Broadbent). Pursued by disgraced soldier-turned-policeman Hannah (Hugo Weaving), Feeney will stop at nothing to avenge his family and his country. Official Selection, 2018 Berlin, Toronto and Busan film festivals. DIR/SCR Lance Daly; SCR P.J. Dillon, Pierce Ryan; PROD Arcadiy Golubovich, Macdara Kelleher, Jonathan Loughran, Tim O'Hair.
