The film screens at 21:00 on Friday August 11th on at the Vets Cinemathéque in Providence.

The project was filmed in Ireland throughout Dublin city and Tullamore, County Offaly.

Colourist Eugene McCrystal at Outer Limits completed post production was also on board.

Smurfit plays Amy McCarthy, a doctor who has risen through the medical ranks to become chief surgeon. She has a near perfect life until her past comes back to haunt her. The film stars an impressive ensemble of Irish actors including Tadhg Murphy (Black Sails, Vikings), Mark Huberman (Frank, Noble), Camille O’Sullivan (Rebellion), Jonathan White (Love Rosie, Noble) and Eric Lalor (Fair City).

The film is the debut short from Limerick writer Conor Ryan who is currently in development with Gaumont and Aaron Kaplan on numerous US TV dramas.

Martina McGlynn, Co-Director:
“Conor’s script is very relevant in an era where personal data and privacy is being threatened in a real way. The script and film forces us all to examine our past, even though we mightn't want to!”

‘The Secret Market’ is produced by Martina McGlynn, Victoria Smurfit and Garret Daly through Mixed Bag Media. Based in County Offaly Ireland, the company’s next project is a feature film based on the 1985 true story of the two boys from Darndale Dublin aged ten and thirteen who were stowaways to New York. The screenplay written by Conor Ryan is in development with the Irish Film Board and is currently scheduled for production in 2018.

Tom Collins: “For me it's all about the work, which is about creating a reflection of a modern Irish cultural identity that can travel beyond borders, history and these shores.”
Over €4.6m allocated by Creative Europe to Irish screen industry in 2021
