New Irish thriller You Are Not My Mother to release in Irish cinemas this March

Hazel Doupe in You Are Not My Mother.
The highly-anticipated psychological horror thriller You Are Not My Mother will be released in cinemas across Ireland on the March 4th.

Rooted in eerie Irish folklore, the creepy and unsettling chiller, which is the debut feature from Kate Dolan, is the latest feature from the makers of the award-winning horrors Vivarium and Sea Fever. 

The film stars Carolyn Bracken (Dublin Murders), Paul Reid (Vikings, Ritual), Ingrid Craigie (Blood, Seven Days in Entebbe), Jordanne Jones (Metal Heart, I Used To Live Here), and last year’s VMDIFF Aer Lingus Discovery Award winner Hazel Doupe (Float Like a Butterfly, Calm with Horses).

Char’s mother, Angela (Bracken), has inexplicably disappeared. All that remains is her abandoned car. When she returns home without explanation the following evening, it becomes clear to Char (Doupe) and her grandmother, Rita (Craigie), that something is amiss. She might look and sound the same but Angela’s behaviour has become increasingly frightening, as if she has been replaced by a malevolent force. As Halloween night looms, a night steeped in ancient myth and legend, Char realizes that she is the only one who can save her, even if it means potentially losing her forever.

“It is surreal to know your debut feature film will be seen in cinemas, particularly after the past two years of uncertainty,” said writer/director Kate Dolan, when speaking about the film’s Irish theatrical release. “The film was made possible by a team of brilliant cast and crew and I can't wait to share it with everyone and I am so excited to work with Wildcard on the next leg of the film's journey.”

The film debuted at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival to great acclaim and is set to screen at the Göteborg Film Festival in Sweden, the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival (VMDIFF), and at FrightFest in Glasgow over the next couple of months. 

You Are Not My Mother was produced Deirdre Levins for Fantastic Films (Vivarium, Sea Fever) with funding from Screen Ireland. 

Wildcard Distribution is working with Signature Entertainment on the release of the film in cinemas across Ireland on March 4th.

“I quite like the challenge of writing characters without handles, for an audience to hold on to, you have to really work at keeping pace with them and go on the journey;“ Writer/director Antonia Campbell-Hughes discusses It Is In Us All
“We’ve tried to portray real life, real relationships, and all the complexity that comes with that;” Producer Collie McCarthy discusses his debut Netflix Original, I Used To Be Famous
