The Cry of Granuaile

Sun 10 July / Pálás 3 / 12:00

2022 / Ireland / 82 min / Drama

A grieving American filmmaker and her Irish assistant tour the West of Ireland to research a film about Granuaile, the legendary 16th-century rebel and “pirate queen”. The two women develop an uneasy intimacy as they journey towards a remote Atlantic island, where boundaries begin to blur between past and present, myth and history, dream and reality…
“A witty, personal, and sometimes meta subversion of the ‘American in Ireland’ story.” — WF

Filmed on lush 16mm film, and starring distinguished Hollywood character actor Dale Dickey alongside a stellar Irish cast, The Cry of Granuaile is a genre-defying blend of psychodrama and fantasy from the director of the award-winning The Image You Missed.

Followed by Q&A with director Dónal Foreman.
