This film screened 22nd March 2016.
The shocking revelations of clerical and institutional abuse of children have become a much-referenced theme in Irish film. This debut film feature casts the theme differently, avoiding sensation and challenging the viewer to accept a domestic context for the horrific events.
Playwright and director Carmel Winters will discuss how she developed this story within the broader framework of ground-breaking documentaries such as States of Fear, as well as more mainstream dramas. She will also consider the contribution of film to the process of recovery.
