Break Out Pictures have launched the trailer and poster for Mrs Robinson today to celebrate Mary Robinson’s 80th birthday. The film will go on general release across Ireland on August 24th.

Mrs Robinson was directed by Aoife Kelleher and produced by Cormac Hargaden and Trisha Canning for Loosehorse.

The documentary tells Mary’s story, in her own words for the very first time, shining a light on battles for justice and equality over half a century on the streets, in the courts, at the ballot box, and in backroom corridors of power.

It is described as follows: “A reforming constitutional lawyer and senator in her early career, Mary Robinson detonated an electoral earthquake by winning the Irish Presidential vote in 1990. Later, as a crusading UN High Commissioner, she built a lasting legacy; fearlessly challenging perpetrators of human rights abuses all over the world.”

“To this day, she exerts power and leadership as the Chair of The Elders; the independent group of global leaders (founded by Nelson Mandela) who work for peace, justice and human rights. As an influential global voice, Mary Robinson is also spearheading Project Dandelion: a women-led climate justice campaign.”

Executive Producers on the film include Pat Mitchell (co-founder of Project Dandelion), Geralyn Dreyfous, Lyn Lear, Regina K. Scully, Ruth Ann Harnisch and Melony Lewis. The film was funded by Fís Éireann /Screen Ireland and the Fiscal Sponsorship programme of the Utah Film Center.  

Speaking on the upcoming release Mary commented: “It was fantastic to work with Director Aoife Kelleher and the entire film-making team on this documentary. It is dedicated to Bride Rosney, who persuaded me to do it. I hope it will inspire many young people, and women in particular, to reach their full potential.”
Bono and Irish singer songwriter Gemma Doherty (Saint Sister) contributed a specially recorded song to the film’s soundtrack, Women Of The World.
