The trailer and poster artwork for Antonia Campbell-Hughes Irish feature film It Is In Us All, which will be released by Wildcard Distribution in Irish cinemas on September 23rd.

Having made its world premiere at SXSW Film Festival earlier this year, It Is In Us All marks the directorial debut for Northern Irish filmmaker Antonia Campbell-Hughes. Written and directed by Campbell-Hughes, the feature drama was filmed on location in Donegal and stars Cosmo Jarvis (Persuasion, Calm With Horses), Claes Bang (The Northman) & Rhys Mannion.

The film follows Hamish as he arrives on the soil of his mother’s birth, which he feels instantly. As he travels further into the wild Irish country, a shocking car accident rips him apart, shattering his clenched control. A beast broken; he finds himself lost in the world of his long deceased mother. But when he starts to receive visits from a teenager who was also involved in the crash, Hamish begins to experience the electricity of living.

It Is In Us All recently received its Irish premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh last July following its world premiere in Austin, Texas at SXSW Film Festival where it won the Special Jury Prize for Extraordinary Cinematic Vision. “Receiving the ‘Extraordinary Cinematic Vision’ Jury award at SXSW was a huge affirmation for what I set out to communicate through visual,” said writer/director Antonia Campbell-Hughes.

Antonia was also selected earlier this summer as one of Europe Film Promotion’s Europe! Voices of Women In Film programme at the Sydney Film Festival, which highlighted 10 European women filmmakers to watch.

Speaking about its cinema release, Antonia who wrote and directed the film said: “I want people to feel magic. This can come in the form of discomfort, fear, recognition… It is to awaken a sensation that has been absent or is unrecognisable.”

“I wrote a story about how to explosively collide these two halves. And how that collision could alter the composition of the other, in a suspended reality/ environment,” the director added. “I made a film to explore my own curiosities and to create a textured visual to show my own experience of life. Ultimately, we all try to find methods to communicate. Some connect naturally, some must find alternate tools. My work is my tool.”

“I wrote a Northern Ireland of my heritage that I observe and champion as a dislocated member. A place, like so many, that has a profound impact when it is of our blood, but also completely foreign,” Campbell-Hughes concluded. 

It Is In Us All was produced by Emma Foley and Tamryn Reinecke for Pale Rebel Productions (Redemption of a Rogue) and Conor Barry for Savage Productions (The Cellar, Pilgrimage).  The film was funded through Screen Ireland’s inaugural edition of its POV scheme, which champions distinct Irish female voices with a passion to tell stories on the big screen.

Wildcard Distribution releases It Is In Us All in Irish/UK cinemas on September 23rd.
