Wildcard Distribution to release Irish film ‘The Truth Commissioner’ to cinemas on February 26th

Irish political thriller ‘The Truth Commissioner’ will be released in Irish cinemas on Friday 26th February, being distributed by Wildcard Distribution.

This will follow the film’s screening at the Dublin International Film Festival (ADIFF) on Sunday 21st February and it will also have a special screening at Belfast’s Queens Film Theatre this coming Monday (1st February) as part of their ‘Made In Belfast’ series. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with cast and director.

Set in a post-Troubles Northern Ireland, ‘The Truth Commissioner’ follows the fictional story of Henry Stanfield (Roger Allam), a career diplomat who has just been appointed as Truth Commissioner to Northern Ireland.

Co-starring Barry Ward (Jimmy’s Hall), Sean McGinley (The General), Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones), Ian McElihinney (Game of Thrones) and Tom Goodman Hill (The Imitation Game), the story revolves around the lives of three men who are directly or indirectly involved in the disappearance, 20 years earlier, of the 15-year-old Connor Roche. Though Stanfield starts bravely, he quickly uncovers some bloody and inconvenient truths about those now running the country; truths which none of those in power are prepared to have revealed.

Directed by Declan Recks (Eden) and adapted from David Park’s award winning novel ‘The Truth Commissioner’ by Eoin O’Callaghan, the film looks behind the rhetoric surrounding the Northern Ireland peace process and was filmed on location in Belfast, Derry and Dublin.

The film was produced by David Collins for Samson Films and Eoin O’Callaghan and Kevin Jackson for Big Fish Films with funding from Northern Ireland Screen, the Irish Film Board, BBC Northern Ireland and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.

‘The Truth Commissioner’ will be released in Irish cinemas by Wildcard Distribution on Friday, 26th February.
