Gerard Mannix Flynn in Land Without God
Following its world premiere at the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival, Eclipse Pictures has announce that Irish audiences will have the opportunity to watch Flynn’s documentary on the big screen as it opens in Irish cinemas on October 18th.

Land Without God follows writer Gerard Mannix Flynn and his family who, for the first time, discuss and reveal the trauma of being separated during childhood, being forcibly incarcerated in children’s homes and industrial institutions and the long-lasting effect of abuse that they and generations of Irish people suffered at the hands of the Irish State and Church.

The documentary examines the legacy of Institutional abuse by the Irish Church and State over the last century. The story follows writer, Gerard Mannix Flynn, together with generations of his family who for the first time, speak openly together about their childhood traumatic experience of being removed from the family home and being incarcerated in children’s homes and industrial institutions run by religious catholic orders.  Here the children worked the land from dawn until dusk, ill-clothed, half-starved day in day out.  The regime was merciless.

It focuses on the impact that violence had and is still having on them and their class. Why did this happen? How does one exit the trauma buried deep in the bones of generations? Is it possible to walk away free? And will they let you?

Land Without God is directed by Gerard Mannix Flynn, Maedhbh McMahon and Lotta Petronella, with music from Lau Naukkarinen (Lau Nau). The film is edited by Petronella and produced by Flynn and McMahon for Farcry Productions, with financing by Screen Ireland.

Land Without God releases in Irish cinemas on October 18th.
