Visit, The

Director: Orla Walsh

The Visit is set in 1987, on the day Sheila (Magael MacLaughlin) goes to visit her husband Sean, a long-term Republican prisoner in Long Kesh. During the journey she reflects on the last seven years of being a prisoner’s wife – the expectations, attitudes and pressures of both family and community. By the journey’s end Sheila has made an important decision she must reveal to Sean. Based on a story by Laurence McKeown.
‘Fledgling director Orla Walsh’s debut packs breathtaking tension and emotional turmoil into little more than 20 minutes.’ – Belfast Telegraph, June 1993
