Principal Photography Commences On Irish Language Feature Film 'Mo Ghrá Buan'
24 May 2019 : Nathan Griffin
Macalla
Filming has begun on ‘Mo Ghrá Buan’ - Macalla’s second feature film under TG4’s Cine4 scheme, jointly funded by Screen Ireland, TG4 and BAI, with a budget of €1.2 million.

Mo Ghrá Buan is written by and directed by Rachel Moriarty and Peter Murphy, and produced by Cúán Mac Conghail for Macalla.

This is Rachel Moriarty and Peter Murphy’s second feature film as both writers and directors, after ‘Traders’ (2015).

The story centres on a small town community in the heart of the Gaeltacht of An Rinn, Co. Waterford. Róise (Bríd Ní Neachtain) mourns the loss of her husband Frank Ó Meadhra, when a mysterious dog appears at her house. The dog’s strange behaviour reminds her so much of her late husband, that Róise begins to wonder: has Frank returned in the form of a dog? Is this a story of romance or madness?

Two-time IFTA winner for Waterways and Song of a Raggy Boy, Peter Robertson, is Director of Photography.

The film has commenced shooting in An Rinn, Co. Waterford, and will continue for a period of four weeks.

Bríd Ní Neachtain (‘An Klondike’, ‘Cré na Cille’), Cillian Ó Gairbhí (‘Vikings’, ‘Blood’) and Lorcan Cranitch (‘Love’, ‘Rosie; Cracker’) will play the lead roles. Also starring Barley as Frank the dog.
