Film Mayo to Host Screening of Pilgrimage + Q&A with Director Brendan Muldowney
26 Sep 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Film Mayo will host a screening of Brendan Muldowney’s most recent feature film, ‘Pilgrimage’, which will be shown in the Ballina Arts Centre and followed by a Q&A with the director.

The screening comes as part of Mayo Arts Service Professional Development programme and takes place on Wednesday, October 10th at 7pm. This is a free event, but guests are encouraged to book tickets via Ballina Arts Centre.

‘Pilgrimage’ spent three weeks shooting in locations in Mayo in late spring/early summer 2015.  The feature film makes use of scenic locations throughout Mayo, most distinctively beaches in and around the Louisburgh region.  The film also features a number of local extras.

Penned by screenwriter Jamie Hannighan and directed by Brendan Muldowney, the cast includes Tom Holland (‘Spider-Man’), Richard Armitage (‘The Hobbit’), Jon Bernthal (‘The Walking Dead’, ‘Fury’) and Stanley Weber (‘Outlander’).  Its six-week shoot was between the West of Ireland and Belgium. 

‘Pilgrimage’ follows a small group of monks as they escort their monastery’s holiest relic to Rome. However, the group’s journey becomes increasingly fraught with danger once the political and religious significance of the relic is revealed. Ultimately, the faith that binds the men together threatens to be the very same thing that will tear them apart.

Brendan Muldowney is an Irish writer/director. After graduating from the National Film School, he wrote and directed 9 award winning shorts. His debut feature ’Savage’ (2009) was nominated for 6 IFTAs. His second film, ‘Love Ethernal’ (2013) has played at over 80 festivals worldwide and was the winner of the Dublin Critics Circle award for best Irish film at the 2014 Dublin Film Festival.
