Irish Film Institute -THE GUARANTEE


Director: IAN POWER

90 minutes, Ireland, 2014, Colour, D-Cinema

This film closes on Thursday, November 6th. 

On the night of September 29th, 2008, the Irish government decided to guarantee the entire domestic banking system. That decision was made by a handful of men in a room in the middle of the night. By the time the costs can be fully counted, in another 30 years or so, it will have cost over €60 billion – the most expensive bank rescue in history. The Guarantee tells the story of that night, and what led to it. Starting four years earlier, it charts the peak of the boom and the beginning of the bust. 

Based on Colin Murphy’s stage play and directed by Ian Power (The Runway), The Guarantee features an ensemble cast of Gary Lydon, David Murray, Peter Coonan, Orla Fitzgerald and Morgan C. Jones. (Notes by Wild Card Distribution.)
