Lead cast members Martin McCann and Olwen Fouéré will attend the IFI for a Q&A following the opening night screening of their new film The Survivalist on Friday, February 12th. The screening will start at 8.30pm.
The Survivalist is writer-director Stephen Fingleton’s first feature film. It is an impressively sustained exercise in tension building in which actors Martin McCann and Olwen Fouéré give outstanding performances. An anonymous survivor (McCann) is alone in a post-apocalyptic world until his daily routine is disrupted by a woman (Fouére) and her daughter (Mia Goth). Desperate to survive, the three form an alliance and so begins a tense, minimalist chamber piece in which shifting allegiances between the three characters raise the threat of violence.
Tickets for this screening + Q&A are available now from the IFI Box Office on 01 679 3477 or online at www.ifi.ie.
