Outcasts, The

Director: Robert Wynne-Simmons

Set in 19th Century rural Ireland, Maura (Mary Ryan) is a young disabled girl who lives on the fringes of her community. She associates with another outsider, Scarf Michael (Mick Lally), a musician who is believed to have magical powers. When the locality is beset by poverty, hunger and the elements, Maura is blamed for her community’s bad fortune. ‘In this film we raided the vast store of folkloric material of which Ireland is guardian, in order to create a new myth in the ancient tradition of storytelling.’ – Robert Wynne-Simmons, 2003.
