Poitin

Director: Bob Quinn


A deeply unsentimental view of Connemara and the West of Ireland, Bob Quinn’s film was the first filmed drama of its length in the Irish language. In a story that has parallels in contemporary tales about turf wars among drugdealing gangs Cusack plays a wily, ageing poitin maker who is threatened and robbed by younger men who have no idea how ruthless he is. ‘Its good, a deromanticisation of Conamara.’ – Bob Quinn, 2003
(1977, 65mins, English subtitles)
