The opening night of our Mid Winter Film Festival - enjoy a nip of potato gin + stay after the film for our pre-recorded Q&A with director Tom Sullivan.

Dir. Tom Sullivan, Ireland Run Time: 85 mins Irish language with subtitles.

A striking feature debut, Arracht (Monster) is set in the wild shores of Ireland's barren west coast as the potato blight descends in 1845. Stripped back and fierce, it's an intense small-scale Gaelic-language drama which plunges the viewer into the cold desperation of those times. Ireland 1845. As the famine tightens its grip, a fisherman is hunted for crimes he did not commit.
