The evocatively named Pilgrim Hill – the feature debut from 24-year-old Gerard Barrett – imparts a compassionate view of withdrawn bachelor farmer Jimmy Walsh as he is confronted with a set of crises, all of which are beyond his control. Winning several awards since its premiere last year, this film is nothing short of a triumph for its young Kerry director.
Pilgrim Hill opens at the IFI on April 12th and we are delighted to welcome director Gerard Barrett for a Q&A following the 18.30 screening on April 12th as part of Spotlight: New Irish Film at the IFI, a new annual month-long celebration of Ireland’s film industry by the IFI in partnership with the Irish Film Board/Bord Scannán na hÉireann.
