Filming underway in Northern Ireland on Oorlagh George's Stranger with a Camera
14 Feb 2020 : Nathan Griffin
Ellie Bamber will feature as Gráinne in Stranger with a Camera
Principal Photography has begun in Northern Ireland on Stranger with a Camera, the debut feature written and directed by Belfast-born filmmaker and artist Oorlagh George.

George won an Oscar for producing short film The Shore, and the project was developed through Sundance Institute’s Screenwriting and Directing Labs. The shoot will last for five weeks in the Co. Down coastal village of Killough, framed by the dramatic Mourne Mountains. 

The film stars Ellie Bamber (BBC’s Les Misérables, Tom Ford’s Nocturnal AnimalsThe Trial of Christine Keeler) in the lead role as Gráinne, alongside Owen McDonnell (Killing Eve), Michael Shea (Derry Girls), and Brian Milligan (Hunger). George is producing the film with Mary Ann Marino (Mars Attacks!, Permanent), Molly Egan (We Need to Talk About Kevin), and John Wallace (RialtoSongs for While I’m Away)

The story centers around a troubled American teenager stranded in a Northern Irish village after her father is arrested for a 17-year-old murder tied to the IRA. Compelled by her father’s secrecy, she teams up with a delinquent cousin to pry their family secrets from the cold dead hands of the past.

Speaking about the film, Oorlagh George said:

“This is a story about the power of empathy among young people in Northern Ireland, as they try to make sense of a history shrouded in secrets and transcend the boundaries and burdens they’ve inherited. Gráinne grows up with a trauma that doesn’t have a story. This film is her fight to understand the events that shaped her life, in order to move on.”

Enough Dynamite Productions, Nickname Pictures, Gamechanger Films, Feracious Entertainment, Mary Fisher Ltd., Moviehouse Limited, and Blue Lake Entertainment will serve as Executive Producers. 

The film is supported by Sundance Institute, Northern Ireland Screen and Screen Ireland, with additional grant support by The Utah Film Center and Artemis Rising.
