Redemption trailer

Want to get a sneak peak of the latest vision of Cavan on camera before the world premiere of Philip Doherty's Redemption of a Rogue takes place?

Here is the official trailer of the film before it is screened as part of the Galway Film Fleadh.

Instead of the usual red carpets and champagne receptions the audience for the Cavan director's cinematic debut will be in livingrooms around the world as The Galway Film Fleadh, now in their 32nd year, takes place entirely online.

In the short trailer we get a flavour of the story of Jimmy, a nihilist carrying around a black leather doctor’s bag containing the rope with which he plans to hang himself. Filled with guilt and shame, he returns to his hometown in the cold austere beauty of West Cavan.

The film is available to view on the Fleadh website this Saturday from 9pm. The screening is followed by a question and answer session with director Philip Doherty, producers Emma Foley & Tamryn Reinecke and cast Aaron Monaghan, Aisling O'Mara and Kieran Roche.
