First-look trailer released for Arracht, Tom Sullivan's famine drama
28 Jan 2020 : Nathan Griffin
Dónall Ó Héalaí in Arracht.
Filmed entirely on the remote west coast of Ireland in Connemara, Arracht is a haunting tale of overcoming grief and the fight for survival.

The Irish language feature film stars Dónall Ó Héalaí, Michael McElhatton, Siobhán O’Kelly, Dara Devaney, Peter Coonan, Seán T. Ó Meallaigh, Michelle Beamish and introduces 11-year old Saise Ní Chuinn.

Arracht (Monster) made its world premiere at the 2019 Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival in Estonia, where it was selected for the competition section (Grand Prix).

Set in Ireland in 1845, Arracht centres on Colmán Sharkey, a fisherman, a father, a husband, who takes in a stranger at the behest of a local priest. Patsy, a former soldier arrives just ahead of ‘the blight,’ a crop disease that caused the Great Plague, killing and displacing millions of Irish people.

Arracht is a feature film by Macalla, supported by TG4, Screen Ireland and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) through the Cine4 scheme. Written and directed by Tom Sullivan. Produced by Cúán Mac Conghail for Macalla.

Break Out Pictures will release Arracht in Irish cinemas on April 3rd, 2020.
